! ! Our Comet Wise

Rating: 4.0

Our comet with a fiery tail
moves slowly as it enters
heavens doors, to illuminate
the way to peace, the bliss,
the happiness that waits,
for all that seek to live a truth.

Our Comet Wise, tours our
Universe, it swoops through
the heavens with the speed
of a shooting star, and the ease
of a wandering albatross.
Leaving behind the cosmic
sprinkling of knowledge, with
the answers, to our
puzzle of enlightenment.

Is it wise to eat the solar dust
it leaves? Must we chase its
trail of light? Can we solve?
Rubik Heavens secret code,
for happiness and bliss?

Yes, we must follow and keep to
the path, the journey that it makes,
not deviating, being firm and resolute.
Just focus on its light, a light that’s
special, as it highlights all our faults,
and shows the path, the way of truth.

The same light will also warm, soften,
knead our hearts and minds, till
we can feel abundant love for all.
Our hearts will now feel the pain
of other’s in distress, we’ll want to
aid and with compassion, will give help.
Our own minds suffering will now lessen;
problems shared are problems halved.

We must also remain still, fall quiet,
from time to time, in the silent centre
of our Comet Wise. Leaving thoughts
behind, we’ll follow breath, go with
the whispered hush, the noiseless flow,
the silent path, to a place where souls
combine and we can see we are One
‘This is the way to our Enlightenment’

The very sun that enables us to see objects also prevents us from seeing beyond it...we must be able to see what is 'beyond behind this light'...there lies the enlightenment to comprehend...our 'soul searching comet like journeys' towards this goal should continue unabatedly...very insightful write, Bob 10

Your comet is the perfect metaphor for understanding the truth of spiritual bliss. The shining head, the long fiery tale and expansive nature of such a magnificent heavenly body uplifts and inspires the reader.. In particular I loved the line: 'Can we solve Rubik Heavens secret code, for happiness and bliss? ' Oh that you words could be written in huge letters across the sky! Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
