O Love, Tarry a Little Longer

Updated on February 21, 2017

Rapture

Light and splendour

Unshackled,

Your Love takes me to the candescence of the moon.

The evening clouds part to allow Your bedazzling beauty,

To permeate my Spirit’s core.

Adorned like a firmament of twinkling stars,

My hope blossoms, and I yearn for the coming of my sunrise.

I see the plenitude of nature’s grandeur,

It’s music rising up to greet me, like the songs of Solomon.

Your sweet gaze overwhelms me,

As I touch Thy sweet face,

Stunned by the blinding rapture of Your Light.

O Love, tarry a little longer, in the sweet symphony of my Heart.

Let the cadence of Your drums roar with splendour,

Resonating a deep Silence, in the myriad gateways of the Soul.

Short poem

"The dead may be buried in sorrow,

But the minstrels have started to sing.

A black mist hovers over the darkness of the night;

Yet the moon unfolds the great beauty of the Light."-Manatita

      Well, so so. The pendulum keeps swinging, like a Libran astrological chart. Faith remains undiminished, while the Light, poco a poco, unfolds the wings of my undying birthright, in the Temple of the Sun. Ha ha. You asked a simple question!

      I'm not bad, could always be better, of course. Glory be! Thanks Bro.

      "Let the cadence of Your drums roar with splendour,

      Resonating a deep Silence, in the myriad gateways of the Soul." What a profound sentiment, Manatita! This is such a beautiful piece, as always.

      Aaahh! Guessed well. You've joined the club of the enlightened! (chuckle)

      p.s I got a bus pass when I hit 60. I save maybe £3000 a year. Do you have anything like that?

      We have SunRail, but I prefer to drive my car to and from work. It gives me some alone time and allows me to be in control of my "destiny".

      Shauna,

      Alone time in a car? Watch the road (chuckle). I know what you mean. Good to know that you're working. Money is so necessary nowadays. Best wishes.
