Gratitude’s bright face beckons me
Basking in still havens of remembrance,
I Realize the joy of surrender.
The dance of light plays harmonic tunes
Amidst the jasmine blooming in my heart.
Again and again, velvet winds blow through this mind,
Uncovering the silken thread that brings me
Into remembrance of another time,
When freedom reigned in everyone’s heart
And happiness was natural.
The inner landscape moves
gradually into daylight.
And I am the Sky,
Vastly present and aware.
Without a sound,
I, the Self dawns.
I move in wonder,
Marveling at long-ago memories of Paradise,
Indelibly recorded in soul matter,
And once again.
