Awake, o my mind, don’t sleep!

Dawn has arisen,

And the voice of Love heralds good tidings.

The Dance of Peace is calling: “Come! Come!”

Zephyrs sing the merriment of the nightingale;

The bumble-bee is alert to duty’s call.

Nature glows and sparkles,

Like a row of radiant lanterns;

Yet the sloth of sleep surrounds me.

Oh my Heart, Cry!

Enter the body's apathy, to burn my despair;

Remove all shadows of the night.

Let my Soul exalt you,

To magnify this realm of Light.

      Say Bill,

      I'm in Germany. I remembered you, because two friends of mines were reading Stephen King on 'writing' and Stephen Fry on Poetry. I read some of their stuff and they are pretty interesting, but I still chuckled, as I rarely follow the rules.

      I wrote a Poem on Autumn yesterday, and I was actually there! Rare for me, as I use mostly imagery, Intuition and inner experiences. So glad that you liked my phrase. Much Gratitude to the Family.

      Rabadi, Thank you so much. I will visit you when I get back. In Love and Light.

      Miz, not to worry. I go up and down too. Not here in Germany, though. I've spent the last five days in Meditation with my spiritual Brothers and sisters, and I feel exalted! Much Love to you, Miz.

      P.S I dedicated a Flash Fiction to you, I believe. Gratitude.

      Ruby, I thank you. I always need extra prayers. For now, all is inspirational, and I feel exalted! Jai to the Supreme Mother!

      Ann, I thank you. They are all beautiful, yes. In Germany. Will catch up soon. Where are you going next? Much Love.

      Sakshi, thanks for re-visiting. Glad that you found the words.

      Shprd74. How I wish that I was there! Blue skies, eh? One day, perhaps.

      Your lovely poems are so prayer-like, and the music you chose is so fitting. Now I can start my day in a meditative state. Thanks, I needed that because sometimes I need a re-minder to re-member.

      Thank you, Sakshi.

      So honoured by your presence. Delighted to have your here! Yes, the video has excellent music. There are words, though. Just slow to appear. I would have done it different, still, the music is powerful.

      Off to Germany in a couple of hours. Keep up the writing. Much Gratitude. Hari Om!!
