The light of love fills the sky



Beyond all shallow questions of "why?"


The light of love fills the sky


From separate strings


music of beauty springs


All boundaries are lost in timeless flames


Heart is glowing in deep silent knowing


The fresh dew of simplicity


sparkles alive in the rising Sun

I know it's been said, but this was absolutely beautiful because of the simplicity and grace with which it was written. Damn good job!

This just feels like a glorious sunrise, full of new promise, lovely.

'the light of love fills the sky' could be the title of a song. Very lovely word-painting and soothing images.


I'll simply say I've printed this and taped it to an old Chinese print of sun rising over a mountain. Chinese paintings often had a poem, and now mine does. One of your best Nils.
