To speak of that which can't be known,
In experience alone shown
The beauty inherent throughout
The glowing peace the joyous sight
Beyond compare to dare to merge
but where? there, merely in the heart
from grace, serenity melting
from candles aglow, reminded,
know, that delight of flashing lights,
tinsel, tinkling bells is but outward show.

shades of Phaedo ?

The Dying Christian To His Soul
Ode
by Alexander Pope

Vital spark of heavenly flame!
Quit, oh quit this mortal frame!
Trembling, hoping, lingering, flying.
Oh the pain, the bliss of dying!
Cease, fond Nature, cease thy strife.
And let me languish into life!

Hark! they whisper, angels say,
"Sister Spirit, come away!"
What is this absorbs me quite?
Steals my senses, shuts my sight,
Drowns my spirits, draws my breath?
Tell me, my Soul, can this be death?

The world recedes; it disappears!
Heaven opens on my eyes! my ears
With sounds seraphic ring:
Lend, lend your wings! I mount! I fly!
O Grave! where is thy victory?
O Death! where is thy sting?

Really love flows forever
all around everywhere.
Whence it came? It never went
here and there, ever present.

Hearts joined recording the Force
subtle antennas perforce,
waves of grace from another, One,
transmitting through the ether.

Love powerful and crystal
clear, true, near resounding bells
universally transferred
and by the one heart was heard.

Beautiful poems.

She rose up in the early dawn,
No thoughts forlorn...but blissful love.
Recalling words heard and those learned.
Sages, poets, masters of form,
Giving voice to that which cannot be said
Just knowing and taken as read.
The long, the short, the truth of it.
Woven words, symmetry divine.
Tapestry, eloquent design.
Enticing love out from within.
The pattern of the One defined.

Dear Cheryl,

thank you for letting this poem take flight on the forum. Its sound
is so gentle and in its gentleness manifests that love of which it speaks.


Love from David

Endeavour to be free.

But you are!

Endeavour to see Thee.

Seen from the heart
there is nothing to depart.

So, a heart beat away?

Nay!

As close as consciousness.

See.

Spirals of dancing cosciousness
enfolded forever as One
expressing the freedom to Be.

Dear Cheryl

You are far too generous in your praise
for as I think you may well know
these words do not come from a you or me
but somewhere deep within the heart;
and having ventured into that place
where the seed of that which is yet to be
awaits expression in the world at large;
a small fragment of the soul combines
with courage to let it fly, with no confines.
Just as the poem says!

Love from David

Dear David

mais oui
mon ami,
the truth spoken
(eloquently)

the Atman needs
no praise,
just to be,

but..alas.. for 'me'
some merit I see
in acknowledging
the praiseworthy. Smile

Love from Cheryl

The holograms, all around, everywhere
hollow? full of form? repetitions endless,
luminous and yet... bubbles burst...
universes gone,
as melting suns return to the One.

For all was ever One.
the all are cradled in their cocoons
by invisible hand, protected
nurtured in light.

Until Time bade goodbye, said 'goodnight'
now All again became the One,
from which It never did alight.
