My Beloved
In the land of swans
Under the stars of one roof
Within winged messengers
I burnt all Theories on the stake
Beyond the shell of the flesh
Intoxicated by my lovers touch
Swept off by a wink in a glance
I soared on sapphire feathers
I pledged allegiance to my beloved
willed all illusions to the dust
I dived into drunkenness
Drunken by the pearls of wisdom
I built a bridge in silence
trailed by the holy grail
I weaved a nest with saffron threads
Hidden from the claws of darkness
Guarded by lovebirds and the light
Under the robe of humanness
Inside the eternal rose
Seeds of love grew wings
Caterpillars freed the butterflies
as I slide into my beloved.
Now, I and my beloved dance as one
In the land of swans
