The End of Sorrow


riding the tiger
i curry favour with the cosmos
the end of sorrow

a long match
to the depth of the Truth
autumn leaf

i bow to the Great Leader
of the universe
the author of my being

sing to me, cricket,
the beautiful
songs of joy foretold

field of dreams
i trek the rough edges of reason
the sound of broken life

i capture the elusive muse of destiny
the inner light
that animates my consciousness

i listen to the new voices
in the passionate vortex of desire
evening cool

fishing for the light
in deafening silence
i savour the sublime sweetness of your Dream

your essence glows in my mind’s eye
like this candle
in the temple of wonder

i probe the mysteries
of Terra Australis with the eye of an eagle
under the flowering sky

i fly like the gleam of light
into the heart of oneness
energising my soul
