The starlight bares its glittered thread
while nightfall drops a fine sarong,
and trance ascends far overhead
breaths’ vision glowing in pure song.
While nightfall drops a fine sarong
in solace flushed …dark turns to light
that galaxies meet to adorn
one fragrant reign of soul’s birthright.
And trance ascends far overhead
to drape tranquility…God’s kiss
pouring a mist on eyes that wed
dusk to sun , O heavenly bliss.
Breaths’ vision glowing in pure song
joy and content bring harmony
for starlit trail…all worlds belong,
on streams of oneness, peace holds me.
