Itchy You … Bless You


Nothing feels quite right
The spiritual path beckons
You pay at the door

Down the road apace
Looking into this and that
One rebecomes all

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. Reminds me of where I was in my early 20’s. Seeking, seeking, paying at the door (metaphorically and literally). When we keep searching we finally find our way. (Within πŸ™‚)

    • “As Time Goes By” (music and words by Herman Hupfeld.)

      [This day and age we’re living in
      Gives cause for apprehension
      With speed and new invention
      And things like fourth dimension.

      Yet we get a trifle weary
      With Mr. Einstein’s theory.
      So we must get down to earth at times
      Relax relieve the tension

      And no matter what the progress
      Or what may yet be proved
      The simple facts of life are such
      They cannot be removed.]

      You must remember this
      A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
      The fundamental things apply
      As time goes by.

      And when two lovers woo
      They still say, “I love you.”
      On that you can rely
      No matter what the future brings
      As time goes by.

      Moonlight and love songs
      Never out of date.
      Hearts full of passion
      Jealousy and hate.
      Woman needs man
      And man must have his mate
      That no one can deny.

      It’s still the same old story
      A fight for love and glory
      A case of do or die.
      The world will always welcome lovers
      As time goes by.

      Oh yes, the world will always welcome lovers
      As time goes by.

      (Please do let me point out this is meant allegorically rather than interpersonally. I’d hate to go freaking you out, Betty. πŸ™‚

  4. I love the awakening when ONE becomes ALL. Those words play right into the magical spiritual storyline that is passing through my awareness. Even the title of the poem fits. It’s always great getting to connect with your words. Thrills the euphoria when experiencing the synchronicity of our beings.

  5. The Path of searching leads us through many doors… When one suddenly finds the ALL is within after all. πŸ™‚
    You said so much within those few words Ben πŸ™‚
    Hope you are well πŸ™‚

    • Things are good, thanks. Written nearly two dozen new poems this month so far, and there’s one that I started a while back and left to ferment. Did some more work on it recently and I think it’s almost done now.

      And how are *you*?

      “You said so much within those few words Ben πŸ™‚”

      Been there, done that. πŸ˜‰
