A Tribute To Poetry

 

O beloved poetry

You perfectly reveal

Our windy past

That dangles

By a garland of brilliance

 

Fueling our celestial fire

That burns inside

Our deepest reaches

Becoming a chivalrous passion

An embodiment of grace

 

Through your cloudy symbols

We come to the sanctuary

Of our innermost solace

Sealing the treasury

Of the eternal soul

 

Your messages of realization

Are blanketed in steam

Eventually transcending

On glittering fragments

 

You are a sacred vessel

Allowing us to flow through divinity

On gliding spirits

That permeates with nameless sentiment

Leaving our body behind

In an ancient abyss

 

Ah! But to convey love!

As a sweet rose petal

Guided by a golden thread of courage

Pulsating in the infinite mind

Planted by the hand of the holy

 

What a wonderful vision

It is to be immersed

In such peace!

Bringing forth the universe

Scattering its grace

Upon our corroded minds

 

Oh boon of God

Clothed in radiance

Quench our grief

So that we may find ourselves

In silent music

 

We surrender our core

To touch your essence

Of grace and splendor

Leaving us to fly through mist

Like little white doves

Reaching for the perfectly pure

 

Bestow upon us

A scepter of light

So that we may free

The shackles

Of our limited mind

 

Oh bards of the past

Whose sage mind carries on

Trim our flames

Of ignorance and impurity

To join you in the dance of love

 

Emancipate the sorrow sapphires

That glint in the dark

Exotic as oceans of the moon

Needing only a quiet tug

To liberate its spirit

From its deadening dry drum

 

Let us posses

A knowledge that is beyond

The universal edge

For from our hint of shine

We can become

A silence

That makes all life stand still

 

But for now

I will wander

Like a lost river

In the desert of eternity

To find how to leave

This endless night

That sleeps inside my being

Like an echoing song

Forever churning within

 

 2nd version: with the I instead of collective form correlating much more properly to the ending

Until my salvation enraptures

My heart into heaven

I will wander

Like a lost river

In the desert of eternity

To find how to leave

This endless night

That sleeps inside my being

Like an echoing song

Forever churning within
