My Search

I

Into the mystic realm,
I let my mind take flight,
Over stone strewn highways,
I search the endless night.

I was the Wanderer,
Looking for a goal,
And the Seeker,
Searching for my soul.

I walked the roads of idle fancy,
Paths of material delight,
Stumbling over stones of vain imaginings,
In my search for the light.

A voice deep within me cried:
"Here doesn't lay your goal,
Upon these darkened pathways,
You'll never find your sou."

II

Into the mystic realm,
Again my mind took flight,
Over well traveled highways,
I search the misty twilight.

I was a Seeer,
Seeking an unknown goal,
And a Stranger,
To my own soul.

In this realm of half-light,
I strolled the roads of tradition,
Picking my way carefully,
Through the shadows of superstition.

Still from within came the cry:
"Not in this realm is your goal,
Upon these half-lit pathways,
You'll never find your soul"

III

Into the mystic realm,
Again I took flight,
And walked the paths,
Where God has shed His light.

I walked the hallowed highways,
Trod by the Prophets of old,
Strolled the ancient paths,
Strewn with nuggets of pure gold.

This is the wondrous realm,
Where all paths become one,
This is the glorious land,
Illuminated by God's sun.

Through the Word of God,
I have found my soul,
In the Messenger for this age,
I have found my goal.

Memorial Service: To Ali Akbar Furutan The lover died serving the Cause of the Beloved, serving humanity, and scattering the seeds of unity Scarlet edged blossoms-- their dual toned petals open to the night, and their sacred scents warming autumn's chill-- share the water of life with apricot tinged gladiolus and green leaf filler stand in crystal vase that is setting on a baby grand. A picture of the ascended smiles at us from the stage; on each side of the enlarged ... [Read more]
Rejoice in the Bounty of the Lord

Rejoice in the Bounty of the Lord Rejoice in the fruits of God's new creation, Spread out for humanity, On the table of God's latest revelation, The fruits of peace and unity. Rejoice because a new garden grows in paradise, Planted by the lamb of sacrifice, Nourished by the water flowing from God's throne, And overshadowed by the Tree of Life. {dropnote:"Poet's Note:"}This poem was written in 152 B.E. ...
