Come! Be a haven unto my Soul, o Love!

You have unlocked the sacred chambers of my Heart,

And handed me a welcome invitation.


This fragile frame knows it is embracing greatness --

A most meticulous Designer --,

Awakening a perennial Bliss from Heaven.


Cute Lover, You're like an Aladdin’s cave!

But with my secret ‘Open Sesame,’

I just know that I have found my Treasure.


A most amazing phenomenon in my Life,

Is the joy of meeting You within.

Absorbed in the glistening beauty of Thy fiery Flame,

I know neither my name, nor whence You came.


Now morning penetrates my window;

Blue skies awaken the nightingales of the dawn.

I lie in trance, drinking the wine of crimson roses,

Lost in contemplation of Your Great Unknown.

Aww – how I love this! As I entered into the emporium of Love, I met copious Souls, but there was one which simply stood in silence. The radiant rays were so magnetic that I couldn’t resist, and so is this captivating poetry.

‘I know neither my name, nor whence You came…’ sums it all. Thank you for writing this masterpiece. Oh, and hats off for this beautiful dedication to your friend. I have voted for ‘A sweet unspoken silence of the soul.’ God Bless :)

Surabhi, So happy that you love this! I also entered into a paragon of Love, and met with many Souls! One was an embodiment of Elegance and stateliness, and my Heart stirred.

Gratitude,my Sweet sparkling and comforting butterfly.

Hi Bill, Namaste! Send her my Love and best wishes. Have a great Monday!

Thank you Frank, on this cold but pleasant Monday morning. I'm reading your past works, but I don't think I've seen any recent ones. Taking a break?

"Lost in contemplation of the Great Unknown." Only a sincere seeker can think this way.

Such richness and delicacy as I travel through your words of ecstasy. The music and video is so heart warming. PS48 is so deserving of your touching words and music aroma. She should float on the rapture of love for always. Super performance here manatita.

Brother Al,

your sweet words are always an encouragement to me. I truly appreciate them. Joy and Peace.

Venkatachari M,

Yes, my brother, you're sure right. It is quite possible that she needs some extra prayers. Let us hold her and family in our thoughts. Much Gratitude. Hari.

Such "Mutual Awakening" is rare - when spirits two become being one.

Honorable magic, conjuring the endless romantic interlude....

I like how you weave the Alladin mystery into this search. A great love offering in response to those protective angels Patricia keeps sending.

Hi and hello! So lovely to know that you've got a break. Thank you so much and yes, great receiving those angels. I need many! Yes, that was 'cool' bringing in the Alladin's piece. I heard the word 'treasure' and from this one word I created about four lines. Much Love, Dee.
