A Silent Visit

Mantra; protector deities
thine inner-mind turns intwined upon an intuitive resolve.

Ancient tranquility unfolds a definitive aspect of inner light.

Cerulean heart ship sails in silent simplicity
On a sentient river where future action transcends the never ending endeavor.

Simple drizzle struggles to remain a non violent rain.

Vesper lotus blossom
Welcome the flowers that close at night.

Instinctive insight, humanities divinity.
universal sanctuary, body reflection.

First frost of autumn ready the grave blanket for a visit.
First snowfall of winter we carve a mandala in the snow.
