I am forever chasing light. The kind of light that turns ordinary places into a magical wonderland.
The light dances at the center of my life; the light strikes the chords of my love; the sky opens, the wind runs wild, laughter passes over the earth…
What I saw was just one eye In the dawn as I was going: A bird can carry all the sky In that little button glowing.
Never in my life I went So deep into the firmament.
It's like the light, A fashionless delight It's like the bee, A dateless melody.
It's like the woods, Private like breeze, Phraseless, yet it stirs The proudest trees.
It's like the morning, Best when it's done, The everlasting clocks Chime noon. It's like the light,
Even in the darkest clouds There are specks of joy Out of the darkness Comes light Just as day Always follows night
Away from the house, the star is reluctant Pushed from its window of sky. It stalls at the morning’s shelf, letting Fabled light open history. Again.
Tardily, it drops its gifts -Modest opulence brimming with season- Its warmth, a glass spirit held in the hand.
And, as the day is made special with prayer It will fall. Fall back to its dream. There It will sing. Unwrapping the day With its presence.
Winter has just set in Like a beautiful tasty sin Snow has started falling down To cover the land with whitish crown She is out to play in snow Love is ready to flow and grow Flakes of snow when touch her cheek Beauty plays hide and seek Pink flowers pay tribute Then lover comes in pursuit At a glance eyes salute She is innocently cute Love is pure beauty is white Light just embraces light

That's how I feel - like the winter-fringed breeze might scoop me up into its wings,
away with me trapped in its feathered embrace. I am a snowflake. A wisp of eiderdown,
from gravity. My body is light. Ephemeral. My head is light. I want to sway
the weight of air, dizzy with thought. Light filters through my closed eyelids.
chasing shadows, tells me I'm not afloat in dreams.
Beyond speech and mind, Into the river of ever-effulgent Light My heart dives. Today thousands of doors, closed for millennia, Are opened wide.
There's a certain Slant of light, Winter Afternoons That oppresses, like the Heft Of Cathedral Tunes
Heavenly Hurt, it gives us We can find no scar, But internal difference, Where the Meanings, are
None may teach it - Any 'Tis the Seal Despair An imperial affliction Sent us of the air
When it comes, the Landscape listens - Shadows - hold their breath When it goes, 'tis like the Distance On the look of Death
Day’s sweetest moments are at dawn; Refreshed by his long sleep, the Light Kisses the languid lips of Night, Ere she can rise and hasten on. All glowing from his dreamless rest He holds her closely to his breast, Warm lip to lip and limb to limb, Until she dies for love of him.
