Walk Me Through the Garden of Love
I seemed to have loved you before. I awoke one day, as if in a dream and saw only a stream of Light… endless Light, blazing through my window. I danced with the zephyrs of the dawn; played romantically in the Hearts of Lovers, in myriad forms, all praising the glory of His name.
Ah! How we danced with joy! The golden chalice of my Soul, walked me through a valley of blazing candles; I bathed in an ocean of effulgent Light. I saw you, my friends, emanating from the Cosmos; the craters of the sun… ah! So much beauty! Such Love unparalleled! Aye! I ascended to the mount of Jerusalem, listening to Arias in His flame.
Garden of Love 1
A Free Verse Sonnet
I am neither a theologian, nor priest.
I speak of no country, doctrines or Faith.
You may say … I am a fire that longs to burn;
A student of Peace, in the queue of longing,
Seeking to discard the ego of confinement,
To discover that sweet realm of … ‘not this, not that.’
I just want to know You;
To offer my salutations at Your feet of Light.
Helpless… helpless am I;
Yet there is so much yearning in
This helplessness of mines.
How I long to drink Thy melliferous wine;
To enter the realm of speechless banquets!
Take my hand ... walk me through the Garden of Love.
