Experience

Experience
“What past experience have you had?” they asked…
then she laughed to herself—
(I’ve sat on the thrones of the pharaohs
and begged for alms in the streets,
fought hand to hand in fierce battles
and prayed in cloistered retreats.
I’ve drunk many a cup of sorrow
in Life’s feast of fear and love,
and savoured the sweetness of Spirit
here and in the vast heavens above..)
November, 1996
