Wisp of Smoke

wisp of smoke

There is a fire

That burns so bright it can’t be seen –

But it enables you to see.

 

It gives light and life and joy

To all beings.

 

There is a white-hot brilliance

Blazing in the very heart

Of Being It-Self.

 

Creativity, passion, poetry, music

Pour from there like waves of heat…

 

I am but a prism

That light shines through…

 

A leaf, withering in that heat

Quivering with anticipation

 

Laughing, burning

Begging to become

 

A wisp of smoke.

  1. What a delight to return after few weeks of being away from blog and being treated by your most engaging posts! This poem is beyond beauty – it shall dance in my soul for sometime and more.
    Keep penning…yours is a beautiful heart and soul, my dear mate!

    • Thank you so much for sweet comments, Shaheen! You have brought joy to my heart and a smile to my face, as you always do. I too have been away from cyberspace for awhile now – it seems the outer world has gotten a bit hectic. But I shall be back, and I will keep penning as long as this heart keeps beating 🙂

      Stay gold, dear friend!
