Ancient love

I groped through cluttered lanes
Dark and dismal
I couldn’t rally
Around or be calm or stall
My claustrophobia and fears.

I peeped through window panes
I stumbled and fell
Stuck in the blind alley
Where I could see vermin crawl;
There was no stopping my tears.

Was this the hell they spoke of?
The fire and torment
That took over the mind?
The obvious consequences
Of it’s own disarray?

Exit was close enough
But I had ignorantly spent
A lifetime to find
The signposts with directions
That would show me the way.

Now beyond the past
Out of the murky bylanes
Of ego and desire
I rest my heart and feet
I am one with the throng

The valley is green and vast
I feel lie a child again
I fill my lungs with air
My life a fluttering sheet
Of Life’s all pervading song.

Like lamps being lit at dusk
Like homing birds in the sky
Like a stroll in the woods
Like a rivulet flowing by.
Like a patch of wildflowers
Swaying in the breeze
Like a lonely rustic path
Winding through the trees.
Like raindrops falling
On fields rich with grain
Like a nightbird sharing
It’s silent , secret pain.
Like a thirsty soul yearning
For a few drops
Like heartbeats slowing
Till they finally stop
