Spiritual Life Begins with the Tongue

Spiritual life begins— at the tongue, we are told. That wagging piece of flesh, it seems has a mystery to unfold. Vibrating sounds and tasting— two things we all adore.

Energy In — Energy Out, “Forbidden fruit” is what it’s all about, Cloaked in a Torus — it reveals its heart, When cut horizontally and two sides set apart.

The Inner Artist (POEM)

The Inner Artist By Paul Turner (6/2/2011 Sydney, Australia) The artists’ quest to explore the heart, To learn of Self – sets them apart, From the fodder of public and depravity, Who wallow in arcades of debauchery.
