The Manvantara

Poem By Valerie Dohren

At the beginning.....

Uncreated form lay resting
In the silent cosmic womb
Unconscious bliss pervaded darkness
Life lay dormant, yet to bloom

The breath began, the note went forth
Through the void which filled with light
Pulsating life became the logos
Ever now the spark shines bright

And seven great years passed by -

At the end.....

The spark enfolded all in oneness
Truth became reality
All man`s dim senses were illumined
By the act of unity

The breath returned, all murmurs faded
Silent now the path we trod
As I am the thinker and the thought
This I know for I am god

I saw the face of beauty fixed
Upon the rising sun
Beyond all mortal compliment
Her loveliness there shone

A Walk Through Paradise

I close my eyes to find a place
In different time and different space
And in imagination find
A cloistered arbour for my mind

Ode To A Lost Love

'Oh sweet breath of eternal life
Dance ever `pon her silent breast
Released from pain and worldly strife
The one I love is laid to rest'

A Dream

Today I slipped into a dream
And saw a better world
A world of peace and gentleness
Before my eyes unfurled

After The Rain

After the rain the air is sweet
With glist`ning pools beneath my feet
Raindrops dripping down from the eaves
Teardrops slipping off shining leaves

........ On Poetry

Such princely and linguistic feats
As penned by Shelley, Byron, Keats
Though rich and eloquently grand
Are oft` too deep to understand
