The Beauty's Dawn of the Climbing Aspiration-Heart
Pillar

Curtains

That peak of immense size and elevation

The winds blow harshly on mortal lives...
at behest, begun Anew- in silence.

The boast:
This most auspicious host
Descend and infiltrate humankind;
Stirring rebellion unto the ancient tyrant, death.

A gathering of rshis sit cross-legged;
A circle, amidst a pillar of fire
Casting starlight into the shadowed Void.

Anger, controlled;
Poison, their words;
Spat into powerful mantras.
Transformed
into Amrita, linger
On the breath of lips, whisper

Mingled
with eternity's silence.
Freedom's laughter,
Ringing,
echoes down the lofty, barren slopes
From the peak of Mount Meru.
