In The Rays of Thy Resplendence. A Dedication to Joy I-Shine Grey.
I was once trapped by desire.
Like Paris of ancient Greece,
In search of you, my Helen,
I flew on my longing; solicited the Heavens,
So that our heartbeats, could become one.
I grew wings, and with lofty words,
Cascaded the fragrances of emeralds in your Spirit.
Now my Beloved has painted a silhouette,
Of such magnificence, that it tantalises my Soul.
How I have longed for Love!
In my aloneness, I have touched It;
Kissed it; felt it pulsating in my Heart.
Now I shimmer in the rays of Thy resplendence;
Stab Your Delight into a million glows!
I am drunk with this sublime vintage, of Your nectar-wine.
Let me hold You in sacred stillness,
No breath between our emanations of fire,
Merging, dazzling; sparkling ... into the Joy of timeless Love.
I swoon in reverie; enter into a state of rhapsody,
Ever conscious of this Eternal moment;
Love has left behind me, all wishful engagements,
Of a seen or unseen tomorrow.

The last one and a half lines, as well as inspirations, are taken from a loving comment from Harish Prasad, but the lofty and etherel style of poetry, is all my own. Gratitude, Harish.
