[ PROLOGUE ]


Those fragile winds carry no dews

    Of life lost deep within, astray
And thoughts shape like old dunes
    Only loathed fear is felt and dismay
The night plays such tenuous tunes
    O, fear upon winds flight away
And stars rounded all earthly moons
    Where awakening slays every decay
Began my voyage dry as of June's
    My cheek bewitted of tears gray
The soul whispers of nightly glooms
    And of a day joyful carrying blues!



[ BOOK I: The Lost Voyager ]


What towering fences built high
    Of adobes make the ego-nest
What towering fears broke the sky
    With such dismay of mind's mist
I, the emblems of winter's sigh:
    The being of all anger detest
I, the sentience of warrior's cry:
    The laughter of joy impressed
Shall I behold upon the self - my ally
    Or upon the enemies - disgraced
Shall I ever behold the truth high
    For such truth is the bride of I!



[ BOOK II: The Voyage - Igniting the Flame Therein ]


The voyage had begun of total escape
    A shelter from the shimmering Sun
Masked it was of my weakness's shape
    As I: Journeyed forth, lost I had run
The voyage then, shifts into ignorance-rape
    Where awakening of self is yet undone
Truth then unveiled in hands of I - the slave
    Sacrament of awakening that was done
Yet chants the voyage: "The Self all I crave"
    Responsive to everything has gone
For this shelter, of falsity it did behave
    It I abandon with every virtue depraved!



[ BOOK III: The Self's Plexus ]


Lo! Where of winds hide man's serenity

    Nature's Will doth flow and appear
One with all, one in micro-obscurity
    And the selfless nature disappears!
Ignite I the self: The microcosm-identity
    The flame that burns in hearts severe
Of no shape it is and of no depravity
    Shall it bear destruction of ego's sphere
"Do What Thou Wilt", it is of honesty
    It is of Love and to it ye shall adhere
Behold this Law: This cause of maturity
    For it is the very seed of true fertility!



[ BOOK IV: The Embrace of Love and Will ]


Behold now the suspension of disbelief:
    The very cause of destruction deeply
And abandon every sorrow, every grief:
    This embrace is of great maturity
For ye shall bear no prayer to any chief
    Your Self is the Law: Seed of simplicity
Behold on this embrace: Ignition of relief:
    The initiation of our universal felicity
And stumble, O self, upon such books brief
    Where stories of might foretold greatly
Alike mysteries drowned we, in our grief
    Shall we hold upon that very true belief?!

Book IV....The Embrace...hands down my first choice as favorite part of your exquisite work of poetic art! You are articulate, write in depth with philosophical weavings dispersed like a wise man trekking cross the desert in search of water....thirsty for that which sustains life! And part of that which we embrace for self!
Brilliant work my friend!
