All Religions, All This Singing, One Song

What is praised is one, so the praise is one too,
many jugs being poured into a huge basin.
All religions, all this singing, one song.

The differences are just illusion and vanity.
Sunlight looks slightly different
on this wall than it does on that wall
and a lot different on this other one, but it is still one light.
We have borrowed these clothes,
these time-and-space personalities,
from a light, and when we praise,
we pour them back in.
