My Heart is Burning For Love. A Dedication to Deb Hirt (Avian Novice)
To Your Heart-Beauty-Glow and Rainbow Sweetness. Thank You For Being my Friend.
Fly! Fly! Charmed Phoenix.
Carry your deathless and dauntless flame to my Soul,
And guide me to the ambrosial shores of Liberation.
Come, come! Sweet candle,
Bring me your fire of aspiration,
To show me the way, to the other Shore.
My Heart is burning for Peace;
I yearn to dance the rhythm of distant drums.
In this Field of Struggle,
Everything is meaningless, useless and utterly false.
“O Bird of Light, O Bird of Light,
Can you ignite a furnace in my Soul?
The Valley of Joy ever remains awake;
Yet the pain of sorrow never sleeps.
What a challenging paradox!
Come, my winged Redeemer,
Burn my ignorance of millennia.
Let me be drunk with the supernal wine
Of Your intoxications, where,
Lost in stupor, I will ride a carousel of Love,
To dine at the banquet, of the Fire of Blissful Silence.
