The Voice Of God


The sound of the wind
Semantic entanglement
Simply an add-on

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. Looking at the poem you posted before this one leads to the conclusion that mostly God is an add-on. Still, He is so important in human affairs. We have a conservative politician in the State of Wisconsin who is a Catholic and goes around all the time declaiming that he is inspired by his faith to do what he does. What he mainly wants to do is to give all the country’s wealth to the obscenely wealthy and reduce to meaningless the social network for the poor and the small subsidies that go to the middle class, which is shrinking rapidly. Oh that God. He inspires Jesus Christ to say the near opposite of what the Wisconsin politician says and then inspires the Wisconsin politician to let Jesus Christ inspire the politician to oppose the teachings of Jesus while understanding the politicians policies are those that Christ really taught us about. Ahhh, the complexity of it all makes my feet ache! I like your short poem better.


    • “A fundamentalist is a person who talks out of their bottom.”

      – from “The Book Of Guff”

      “I like your short poem better.”

      Each has it’s points to make but the haiku has grace and elegance, which are fine qualities to have along with substance but do nothing to mitigate vacuity (or evil-doing).


  2. The voice of God is in the wind, in the nature (“Semantic entanglement”) – everything! Another great haiku 😀
