naming the blessing

Woe betide the (wo)man who names the blessing.
Could any curse be worse?
True, we were all teenagers once,
Learning to toy with tools whose use
We could only guess
And masturbate in the dark.

The Christians say, "Thou shalt not
Take the name of the Lord thy God in vain."
But what vanity could be greater
Than to name the blessing
Of the light?
Grow up. Grow strong.

Fools curse the darkness.
Fools praise the light.


  1. To bless, to bleed, to acquire the deities favor by trade of blood.

  2. Could it be that the blessing is uncompounded, and thus devoid of the need of any naming conventions?Amen, imho.
