Enlightenment

It is seeing the stars

in the light of the Sun

in the daytime


It is hearing the heartbeat

of a rose as it blossoms

in the spring


It is smelling the scent

of love in a desert

which has no sign of a bird

in the grave-silent sky


It is speaking a similar language

with butterfly-fish and dolphins

as you explore the enchanted floors

of an ocean in the tropics


It is being at One with everything

that is around you in your soul,

making you to be part of the fabric

of the Universe
