Filled With an All- Consuming LOVE (poem)

Source

There was once a reservoir deep within my Soul,

Which carried the memories,

Of all my painful yesterdays.

Now, after so many eons of struggle,

I have finally emerged triumphant,

Immersed in Your jewel of forgiveness,

Drank deep from the chalice of Your Love.

Bathed in an Ocean of Light

Source


Beloved, now that We have merged together,

You have taken away,

The insatiable fire of an unbearable longing.

This once caused buckets to run from sodden eyes;

Saturated a Spirit, lost in hunger for its own fulfilment.

Now that we embrace in sweet serenity,

I am filled with the beauty of Love,

Chant Your name in ceaseless adoration,

And swoon with the joy of a Lover’s clinch.

Immersed in Bliss

Source

A meditation

O sweet and priceless Pearl,

Keep dancing in my heart,

While humming the melody of celestial nymphs.

All my years of suffering,

Like falling waves, have dissipated.

I now lie on the Elysian lap of rhapsodies,

The ecstasy of the lute,

Resonating sweetly in my Essence-Core.

Burn, burn! O Love’s furnace of blissfulness supreme!

Envelop me with the brilliance of a zillion suns,

And fill this receptive vessel, with Your all-consuming LOVE.

My dear friend. The beauty of these words and thoughts are scintillating, yet peaceful an profound. It reads like a breeze or a caress, while telling of your personal rugged spiritual journey and the total embracing victory it has reaped. One of my favorites of all your poems!

I always love your message, but it is the way you deliver it that is very beautiful. You are a gracious man of beautiful words, and the world is better for it. That is your legacy, and what a legacy it is!

To Bill-

You are always gracious, but sometimes you transcend yourself with your comments. I guess we all do. Still, such sublimity and loftiness are truly meaningful to me and why I write, not for ego, but for the joy in knowing that another of my brothers or sisters either understand, or is served in some way. Much peace.

Dee - I thank you wholeheartedly, my Beloved Friend. I give thanks to God, to Guru, to You (plural) who have inspired and continue to inspire me on Hub Pages. You are always in my heart. Be blessed.

This is excellent! I know the feeling well - the fulfilling of any empty lost soul comes only from one source, God above who is faithful and true!
