Stars Waltz on The Darkness, So Hearts May Rejoice.
When a 22-yr old inauguration poet,
Goes viral in 10 mins, it tells me, that
Where ever I am in the world arena,
I’m in need of the Light her Spirit offers.
Some leaders are just tiny parts, of a much
Larger problem --the dearth of the soul.
Amanda's strength, is that she angles the
Darkness, into the Citadel of cosmic Light.
I offer myself to my Beloved, and the whole
Universe works with me. I know that where
My treasure lies, there will my Heart be also.
The Heart, the Heart, for me nothing else matters.
I follow the call of this bodily Temple,
Transform myself in amazing ways.
A cascade of beauty follows my Path,
A fragrance to Sojourners, walking the Tao.
I burn in Its Alchemy, on a Path
Paved with challenges. My desires,
Greed … attachments, are naught but the
Beloved’s labyrinth, to find my way Home.
For a slow student, the good teacher
Repeats each lesson again and again.
Whene’er my Queen embraces me, She removes
Worn strands from my blueprint of memories.
I ascend on the flames of the Phoenix, crawling
In spirals, like a snake. Shaped like malleable
Clay in the hands of my Weaver, I attune
To the moon and twinkle of stars.
I soar upwards, as Orion dances, preparing
A banquet for Emperors and Queens.
I, who was lost in turbulent waters,
Now turn my gaze to welcome the shore.
I sail on a vista of new horizons, away
From sad songs of supremacy;
Adorned by the lyrics of magical psalms,
Cascading their rays, to the harp of my soul.
I know from the sad tale of Pharisees, that the
Mind’s brilliance, is no match for the unspoken
Radiance of the Heart; so I speak, not of
Inequities, but study the scents of fragrant flowers.
It is the myriad notes in an orchestra, that
Blends the music together, like the silent awe
In a poem sublime. It is Love which gives me the
Sting of thorns, to transform me into roses.
Any erroneous leadership, eventually lead to a brighter
Sunshine. Stars waltz on the darkness, so Hearts may rejoice.

Extracts from Sri Chinmoy's Writing
"... in the near future, a new Light will dawn, and it will clear all the clouds, the thick clouds that have gathered together for years. Very soon - I am not saying tomorrow or in a month or in a year or two - but in the near future, the world will see the dawn of world history." - Sri Chinmoy
