Leaving Behind Me This World of Shadows
You are so merciful, my Darling!
You lift me in my despair and in
The fragile tenderness of tears. Those sweet
Roses that You sent, were carved immaculately,
In the delicacy of wafts and heavenly intimacy.
Only yesterday, I was in a turbulence of waves.
The rolling tides were unending, and
I was pushed by fierce winds that invaded
My vessel, left me vulnerable and
Shipwrecked at the mercy of rocks.
Now You are so close, my Sweetheart;
The Light of Your moon serenades my Heart.
My joys and my sorrows, have both merged
Into the laughter and merriment of Love;
Your breath kisses my cheeks; Your fragrance, is divine.
Lantern says: “Here in this marigold of Lovers,
I wish to die for You! Not dead, but alive in
Your lap of passionate embrace, leaving my fetters --
My cluttered chains of the journey,
In this transient abode or world of shadows.

Another Kind of Discipleship. A Free Verse Sonnet
Some say that Karma, is neither good nor bad,
Yet it coils around us mercilessly, in our abyss.
Some pupils listen to the persuasions of demons,
Others gaze upwards to the radiance of the sun.
In this game of fear, greed, insecurity and control,
Only the prudent rises, like the tides.
The rest have shadows, interred in their bones;
Avarice and darkness reigns supreme.
Their masters, like lost or callous souls,
Constantly presses the button of self-destruction.
Dark vibrations taint the sky, but
They hide in fragile houses, pushing
The blame on the Commander-in-Chief.
Come! O Guardians of the Light! Hurry!
