Your God – a poem

Man speaks of Yoga,
Yoke between mind and body.
Inexplicable experience,
Consciousness of beyond.
And someone asks:
“Do you believe in God?”
Asking, repeating his question.
The man explains
His God no dogma,
His beyond spiritual.
But still the questioner persists,
A mind, unable to accept
The powerful message at his feet.
And so they part, each his way.
One humble, a mystic unity within his grasp,
The other arrogant and only a word,
God; as his explanation of beyond.
