Reflections of the Inner Light

Argonath

nothing is as it seems
heart strings are played
as if a toy lute
love sinks deep
into the abyss
looking for light
underneath source
is only a reflection
and cannot be seen
with all the eyes
in sadness
still staring
still tearing
only felt
with the heart
illumined
by the warm glow
an ever present
sacred sun
who gives life
to shadows
dancing
on the walls
as mirrors of
a bless’ed
inner light

A prisoner of mind

Step inside this thought and see
all the light surrounding things
Hollow laughing, empty voice
every thought a current brings

Across the consciousness of living
reveals what’s lost in memory
of places still and evermore
refrains of chords will always be

Sealed in every breath we take
from the living eons past
Ours to know an ancient song
in shadows from a full moon cast

Long before our eyes could see
or ever know the forest stands
before a storm of drifting snows
icy winds through foreign lands

A moments dream is crystallized
locked we are into this time
apart from all, the sentence cast!
a lifetime prisoner of the mind

It embodies all the eons of time, all the souls journeys, all the joys and discontents. We choose life fully aware of its potential, then step into it, without a clue of the fore knowledge that lead us here, embodied, separated … yearning
