WHEN ???....WHENEVER




Within, the stars swirl and lift
I spread my wings and spiral off
immersed in peace, free of loss
as the obscuring curtain opens
Nothing hidden in this span
as carnal thoughts bow low to Wisdom
dividing lines blur from existence.
Mind opens to Heaven beyond the earth
Translucent beings hover and accompany
misty forms amid a Celestial Sea
A serene ballet of Love expressed
He addresses the temporal
dismissing space and time
They take their leave like obedient children
While I find ........
No concern for good and evil,
no concern whatsoever
No fables of retaining familiar form
No separation exists
No distance to travel
No interest in "knowing about"
No sweat to receive.

Buddha Bar - Desire (Dedicated)





A lover knows only humility, he has no choice.
He steals into your alley at night, he has no choice.
He longs to kiss every lock of your hair, don't fret,
he has no choice.
In his frenzied love for you, he longs to break the chains of his imprisonment,
he has no choice.

A lover asked his beloved:
- Do you love yourself more than you love me?
Beloved replied: I have died to myself and I live for you.
I've disappeared from myself and my attributes,
I am present only for you.
I've forgotten all my learnings,
but from knowing you I've become a scholar.
I've lost all my strength, but from your power I am able.

I love myself...I love you.
I love you...I love myself.

I am your lover, come to my side,
I will open the gate to your love.
Come settle with me, let us be neighbours to the stars.
You have been hiding so long, endlessly drifting in the sea of my love.
Even so, you have always been connected to me.
Concealed, revealed, in the unknown, in the un-manifest.
I am life itself.

You have been a prisoner of a little pond,
I am the ocean and its turbulent flood.
Come merge with me,
leave this world of ignorance.
Be with me, I will open the gate to your love.

I desire you more than food or drink
My body my senses my mind hunger for your taste
I can sense your presence in my heart
although you belong to all the world
I wait with silent passion for one gesture one glance
from you.
