A Breath

A Breath

A breath of thought to span the ocean’s vast,
A wisp of will to plumb the ocean’s deep,
A day of cries to bridge the earth-gulfs fast
And steal the sky’s immortal ecstasy.

A trace of light to find life’s blue-gold peak,
A speck of joy to feed life’s blooming dream,
A rainbow of delight to seek and swift
Become the fullness-ray of Light supreme.

A drop of Heaven’s lustre to imbibe,
A rose of Heaven’s splendour to inhale
To be an initiate strong of the celestial tribe,
In God’s Boat of Delight the world to sail.

– Abhinabha Tangerman.
