A powerful light shines in the dark.

Don’t let my light go out.

That plea haunting at night

When she felt her prana slack, her chi fade

When alone with no one about


Don’t let my light go out:

She whispered in the dark

Examined the babble of scribes

The words she now began to doubt


Don’t let my light go out!

Not now, not with a life half-lived

Her life-force as yet unspent;

Angry at last she began to shout


Curses at the images

Thank you O my God for colours

Thank you for the eyes that see them

For the hands that can make them

For the breeze that touches my ears that feel

For the light which removes the shadows from my heart

For the heat of your sun radiating my face

For the energy of my walk

And for the quiet moments.

Do not fear the fire in your belly:
That shaft of flame rising
or the burning tongues on your head,
leaping, tickling;
It is the shakti that stirs –
the paraclete.
Who wakens the sleeping spirit
and warms the chakras?
Is that the chi I see
now snaking up like bolt of energy?
Where is my God in all of this?

He waits inside in secret.
