|Baha'i Devotional Gathering in Zambia|
Sitting here with my friends,
All my relatives,
All created things.
All those who have gone on.
The saints. The Holy Ones.
We sit here with the best friend—
that Great Voice that speaks in my heart—
Sitting here we have a little coffee, a little tobacco.
We sit quietly and listen to the Great Voice,
remembering what we know (not much).
Remembering what is true. What is true.
(eleventh in a series on The Long Obligatory Prayer.)
