HOWLIN' DERVISH Poems
Intertwined In Love
Now I am wholly intertwined in love
Wholly torn from creature comforts
My heart is no more - some other sustains me
Reason, thoughts... are emblazed at their very root
Envision my vision - behold me through my eyes
Beyond all illusions - I have chosen a home
Joy in certainty.
To receive the gift of Joy is to be clothed in rapture, slaked with ecstasy, elated with bliss.
Suddenly in my bosom
A star shone clear and bright
All the suns of heaven
Vanished in that star's light
(Trust in God [but tie the camel’s leg]
