Ah! My Beloved, You have hidden Yourself,

And I’m sitting by the fireplace all alone.

As I sulk in my yearning,

Your radiant smile dances in my Heart.

I am enchanted by the quintessence of Your Beauty;

I wish to die in Your Delight of a thousand flares.

I want to cling, yet I long to reach this pure state

Which is free, delightful, trusting …

The psalm, ‘The Light of Love’, by the mystic poet Rumi,

Resonates within the carefully chosen chandeliers;

The vermillion roses, so well-placed upon

Your favourite silken pillow, soft … fragrant;

Immaculate as the virgin dawn.

Flakes of gold

On this very special Valentine’s,

My Heart’s lustre sparkles, as

Your Sweetness rains, like flakes of gold;

Your smile is like the setting sun!

My sweet Sunset, where have you gone?

Right now I pine in my longing!

Without You, I feel like a fish on dry land;

A bright flame lost in the darkness;

My emotions are flooded with despair.

Come! Let me wrap You in fine satin,

So that Your body never tires of my embrace.

Perhaps we can lie on the sand together,

With zephyrs caressing Your sweet cheeks.

Sunset

The west winds, the waft of lavenders calls to me;

The rolling leaves of our memories sing;

Glides as gracefully as the nightingale.

My Majesty! You are my chess piece in a brilliant set,

O Queen of Hearts. Your Love overpowers me;

Like a tornado I’m swept off my feet.

Come! Be my Polestar, glimmering

In the aura of my blissful Rhapsody.

The road to You has been full of sandstorms,

And I died one thousand deaths!

Ah! The mysteries of Thy secrets are overwhelming;

Your immeasurable Love burns, like a thousand beams,

Shining in the opulence of my Soul.

      Ah Ruby, You're a real gem. God bless your loving Heart.

      Marlene, my Dear, so sweet of you. Hope that all's good now. My best wishes to the family.

      Hi Dee, yes, yes, but you know, you too! I told you about the workshop I went to last night. The speaker told a beautiful story. I think I heard it as a child and it is also in Sri Chinmoy's teachings. You know it too.

      The lion grew up with sheep and so it thought that it was a sheep. It even bleated like sheep, until one day another Lion took him to a Well and showed him who he was. We are all God's flame or Light. We have forgotten, that's all.

      The love you describe is so grand I wish to bathe in it forever. Very lovely poem. I especially like the reference to the waft of lavenders (my favorite scent).

      Bill,

      I know what you mean. Let's not take it too seriously, while, of course, continuing to do our best. The human ego or greed has always been here; separation or division has always been here.

      Not an excuse, we try, even while we surrender, not the earthly kind, but the one that acknowledges the Higher forces at work and join with them for a greater purpose or common good.

      Eric,

      Thank you so much, my Friend!
