A Tao of Love Floods my Soul, A Soulful Offering To Dabby Lyric
A Tao of Love Floods my Soul. A Free Verse Sonnet
You called my name, O Lover,
A thousand Joys within me stirred!
Here I sit, calm, serene …
Engrossed in the gaze of Infinitude.
Mother Heaven kisses my breath;
The Beloved One dances before me.
Come! Sweet Rhapsody!
Enwrap my core with Your bliss-filled Silence.
The fears of the mind are extinguished;
From deep within emerges the Light.
The pride of the ego evaporates;
The tears of the Heart are unmatched with longing.
Love descends from the rays of an indigo moonlight,
Flooding my soul with its Delight.

Translation: Consider the continuous range of nuances with reality. If for you there is only white or black, consider your limited perception
The Spirit of Hope for Another Golden Dawn
O Hope, my uncaged bird within the soul,
Ever anew, thy spark glimmers, upon each golden dawn.
A New Year beckons and challenges await;
I hear the Guardians of the virgin morn:
“Come!” They say. “The old clock is gone!”
Let us move forward to the vision of the great unknown.
The clarion-call of promise,
Whispers a cute melody in my core.
Arise! Awake! The cuckoo chants beatitudes,
Telling of my yesterday's; rejoicing in my tomorrows.
O Flame! Such beauty in Your lustre!
Burning my host of indiscretions,
You herald the Light of tomorrow's dreams.
O Hope, my uncaged bird, sweet Jerusalem approaches.
Let us soar to the pinnacle of this blinding Love.
