LIGHT FILTERING THROUGH THE CLOUDS


through the clouds it drifts
a sea of milk

a ray of hope
a heavenly rope

a mist of joy
a shadow of sky

a path of noor
a flight of hoor

stairs of light
to inconceivable height

a glow in the heart
a joy, for a start

a sight to feel
a light that heal

material of dreams
a magical seam

an angels ride
sun's own pride

a sight that fills
what a magical feeling!

this poem is about the way light passes thru the clouds sometimes.the rays of light filtering thru is quite mesmerizing

PS. noor is 'heavenly light'
hoor is 'fairies'

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
