To Bow Before You

I fall from the curves
of my being to bow before You
who encompasses the sun,
the stars and the moon…

This Tender, Divine Music!

Now please,
welcome more companions
in this reunion; we’ll be
a choir to the Presence
who sheds this tender,
divine music!

~ The Enlightened Soul ~

Taqwah* is Queen,
Love is King
Heart is the Throne
and the Crown is
the enlightened soul~

*Taqwah is the state of being God-conscious.

In letting go,
there is a grace
that cleanses the soul~

Your Soul’s Secrets

rosesecrets.jpg

This innocence, we both cherish!
You put your hand on my ear
to reveal your soul’s secrets
and I succumb…
The purity of your heart spreads
as if music in my tympanums,
I lay on the floor, my centers
filled with divine laughter;
my location no longer matters
the entire world is you…

(Poem excerpt from The Sublime Sphere)
