The Secret of Secrets

the secret was such

neither ink or pen

message of messenger

nor faculty of conveyance

granted privy to our secret

which remains our secret

lest uttered

By Way Of Attainment

duality began to dissipate

by way of attainment

and embodiment

of Attributes

these dressings

gifted by

the owner of Attributes

so to dissipate duality

Her Name is Dost

This quest for monotheism

lead me to worship love

seeing love in all forms

I became a polytheist

in every prostration

love appeared

who granted you entry

into this chamber

I am the idol of your heart

worship me

as I am reality

appearing through forms

I’ve come through a veil

her name is Dost

Sincerity a Rarity

you left prematurely

anticipating a miracle

the moment you left

a miracle appeared

upon it a signature

of the soul you doubted

sincere ones are rare

only leave if you dare

come come

whoever you are

ours is not a caravan of despair

come, even if you have broken the law

a thousand times

come, yet again, come, come.

Disconnect to Reconnect

these dots connected

then disconnected

to reconnect

on a higher plane

through spirit

our essence

us

we

these centrifugal circles

forming light circuits

where hearts spin

in ecstatic dance

a heavenly trance

this order secret

it’s centre our guide

like constellations

we immerse in your light

none but you

none but you
