Soaring on an Overtone

FROM "FAIRY AND DREAMS"
  

"SOUNDS OF HEAVEN"





Dedicated to Antoinette (Nettie) van Leuween

Dearest friend who continues to live in Spirit and in my heart. 


"I have bloomed before in the garden of life,
Even as now!
You, and all these royal ones 
- here once more! -
Blossomed fragrantly in lives gone.

All barren trees of future lives
We may choose to adorn anew
With buds of our reincarnated souls!
Erstwhile did we abide in formless form
In Spirit's everlastingness,
And thither do we wend again!"
                                             ~ Baghavad Gita

Raag Miyan Ki Todi
Javed AllahDITTA


Rasa of this Raag
"....with a fair erect body like the white lotus, 
and delicate like gleaming dew drops, 
Todi holds the veena and 
provides fun and frolic to the 
ghazelles and deer in the green forest."


Soaring on an Overtone

Sharifah C. Rosso


Inner ear listens to rustlings of quiet stepping breeze,

Speaking to lighted ochre shadowed green leaves,

Watching minuscule Spring drop gently separating,


Dripping, dropping, descending....


Graciously rescinding to absorb itself,

Following path of singularly bladed grass,

Shimmering within its new transparent sheath,

Listening to solitary prayer of sole softly feathered soprano,

Flighting its sacred call for aged oaks and youthful antelopes,

Swirling its flowing fugal form,

Spirling within beaming, gleaming suns.


Memories' hearing disappearing....


Forest grown garden becomes Eternal, below radiating skies,

Time forgotten and unknown within hallowed palaced halls, 

Frozen dew liquified, castles' mansions magnified.

Glittering chandeliers cast flames on flickering shadowed walls,

Dancing on the past....

Persian carpeted, wooden carved floors.

Gold brocaded mirrors imaged diamond rays of celestial source,

Vibrant colors conducting harmonies of symphonies orchestrated.


Singing, ringing, reverberating.... 


Chimed, gonged waves permeating throughout,

Beckoning Earle King's son home,

Following color blue, transmuted to golden-white,

Soaring on fixed overtone. 

No fear on this divine flight!

Enter by condensed will into microcosmic atom,

Macrocosmic spheres seen in beauty's innocent ear,

(Spacious verse is this being's universe!)


Silencing, listening, all absorbing....


Focused star appearing, arising from its deepest night,

Harps, flutes, and roaring seas know its form with great delight,

And with opening of heart, universe III unveils,

All accompanying its ascendancy!


Now, this moment suspended, 

Never to be repeated, no more returning,

Worlds no longer to be seen,

For the beauty of the rainbow exists within its seas,


Golden wings spread its rays,

Following sung line as perfected tone aligns,

Entering Heaven's worlds, soaring within its regal waves!

Becoming one with the holy Aum,

Onward to the eternal home.
