The Secret By Dorothy Walters

The Secret
A hundred scholars
could search the texts
and never find the meanings.
Yogis can turn themselves into pretzels,
become limber as serpents
and still not know the secret.
I think such knowings come from bargains
struck long ago
in a place that has no name.
Formulas were sewn
into your spine and skull,
ready to be found.
No one truly understands
how all this happens,
how some are chosen,
some not.
This is a process
that some call grace.
You must listen carefully
to hear
when your name is called.
