Death To Birth
I saw myself split
Into seven selves
Rising from a smoking fire
One howling one yelling
One barking one grunting
One roaring and two yodeling
While high toned Dark altitonant
In thunderous conflict
Trying to put out all my selves
Ere the clouding smoke
Closed my seeing fully
My hearing felt dolorous
Those kindred cries that
Some shocked some mocked some poked..
My heart bled
Burning my original self
Ran toiling through and through
Just to meet with that next atlast....
You'll not trust..but you have to
I saw a lotus-poised radiance
That showed me the bright sun
I saw a Lily-poised effulgence
That showed me the assuasive moon
Trust me trust me
And I began to see around and the kindreds
I smiled..they smiled and those kindreds
Some emoted some exulted some elated
And now that lotus-radiance
Fed me her milk of love
How I felt safe and secured
And then that lily-effulgence
Cradled me with a song
How I got tickled and gurgled
Maaaaa.....I prattled gibberish
Mama, mamma.....Whelmed she cuddled me
Ah there, I just got stuck in heaven
Vast and abstract
