I was stroked gently by a brilliant aura of radiant Light,

Exalting me to the pinnacle of the sun.

She cleaned my tongue with Her Heart’s fire,

Erasing the venom handed down, a heritage from my ancestors.

Hand in hand, we walked through a pillar of blazing candles,

Me reeling as in a drunken stupor, as Her immaculate Delight,

Demanded the removal of all impediments,

Covering the supernal grandeur of the Spirit.

Ah! What perennial excellence!

The shooting stars danced with moonbeams,

Love’s lute resonating symphonies, in the garden of my being.

Now timeless … timeless … timeless is the moment,

As we waltz and embrace, like a ballerina,

Hearts pulsing our arterial rhythms,

In the bosom of Eternity.

Sweet Infinity! A moment, my Lover Supreme!

Tarry a little longer!

I know not whence I came nor where I’m going.

I am intoxicated, lying dazed on the lap of the Beloved,

And my Soul sings King David’s psalms, in the sweet cavern of the Heart.

      I got Leonard Cohen, Bro. Favourite of mines. Funny I thought it would have been about your wife somehow. I saw Alexandra Burke singing this song. In fact she won a contest with it. Very powerful song. (0037 hrs here). Good night.

      Yes, the great wisdom of Rumi and Hafiz is that their poetry, while Divine, was cloaked, so that it became accessible to all. Wives gave to their husbands and lovers to their partners, even today. Poor Rumi, he was so steeped in God that he could not think of anything else. Yet some of his translations are misinterpreted for desires.

      Some say the Buddha had a flaw, because he did not use the word 'God.' Amongst the greatest Souls ever, he was perhaps the only one who didn't. But it's all there in his writing, and like Rumi's poems, just cloaked.

      Still, I agree. Human love can and has been taken to the sublime pillar of Spirituality. Watch out for the attachments... feel that she is God and act as such in a manner of compassion and Love. But I'm preaching to the converted here. I will look at your link. Thank you so much!

      You reminded me of one I love - nearly irreverent, but that works for me ;-)

      Ah Ruby,

      Blessed is the one who has found his/her niche. I see my poems being read and valued like Rumi's in 30, 40, 50 years. I'm a natural weaver of words. Even more so, I give all credit to my Lord. So happy you're inspired. Thank you so much!

      Just when I think you can't write anything more beautiful, you write a piece that moves me, like this one. Amazing!
