How I Long For The Aroma of That Last Kiss. To Ruby Jean Fuller, With Much Love.

A spark of memory; a moment upon the wind,

And You have left me in longing.

Day and night I pine,

With a Heart made desolate by Thy absence.

All around me, the sweet roses

Of Your splendour, I see.

Yet my cup is half-empty, and forlorn is my cry.

Ah! How I treasure the aroma,

Of that adorable last kiss!

The ecstasy of its allure,

Still lingers in a Heart on Fire,

Calling out Thy name. Come! My Beloved,

Let me cascade trinkets at Your feet.

Cementing an ever-meaningful bond,

Known only to the unutterable,

In the luminosity of the Soul.

The sweet beauty of the Light

Where is Your beauty most?

  • In small things seemingly insignificant
  • In the Light of Knowledge
  • In colours and iconic landmarks
  • In rainbows and horizons
  • In the Bliss of Experience

The Light of The Soul dazzles our outer experiences, remaining as a candle without flicker. Lost in equipoise, ever burning with a naturally higher frequency of Delight. O Bard of Solace, when this happens, all the externals become useless, meaningless and utterly false.

I believe that our meaning in this current life will be revealed just before it is about to leave the present for most of mankind.

That's actually my strength, Sweet Surabhi. When I am talking to or expressing longing to the Supreme. You did this nicely today in your amazing poem. Now you've taken over, or almost. You need consistency. That is all. He he.
