When Light Returns
When light returns to comfort spirit sight,
and weariness falls from enlightened mind,
like sun dissolving cloudy oversight,
the sacred Truth within you'll surely find.
Don't lose life left among the living dead,
whose brood gloom looms, lament their 'unjust' fate,
jealous, restless souls, aversion fed,
as bitter fruits, closed gates, they contemplate.
No longer languish, meet majestic morn!
Transition from dark night to soul healed whole
transforms each ugly duckling into swan,
serenity suggests transparent goal.
A million lives await as hope uncloses
all shutters, masks concealing broken heart,
behind new smile true confidence one knows is
emerging from cocoon as cares depart.
From wanderlust to harmony scope win.
Transformation's trampoline helps rise
above escape's bright mirage, to begin
fresh chapter, verse, rehearse and recognize
intrinsic truths freed from ambition's spin,
repose innate as storms abate, soul wise
may blossom into melody to twin
zen flesh and bones as 'simple' satisfies.
Let lungs breathe deep, absorbing Nature's scent,
from hibernation freed, night births new day,
while winter's sleep joys sweep away, scope sent
through growth within spring's yet more joyful play.
Soon patience is rewarded, see storms pass,
light beams new themes on sacred space within
soul, spirit, as transparent as clear glass.
Slough off rough weight of waiting, shred sin skin.
Tears, fears, fast disappear. Frost melts away
encouraging spring sing-song, bids rebirth.
Bask maskless, free reflections from today
may celebrate an optimistic Earth.
