An original poem


the saint of the pyre
   smiled at me
      for he knew
i would believe
in him
in his truth
       in truth alone
which persists and dogmas
              of priests
had managed to hide
                   in foreign languages

i stumbled across the truth
      one day
               in a vacant corner
in my mind
    and the light
    has never stopped
not even as flames
      engulf me
          as i smile
             at you

Oh, this is a thought provoking, powerful poem! It sent my mind in many directions. Funeral pyre, fire, consecration, consummation, change, reformation, realization!! I'll be pondering this one for quiet a while ....and enjoying this mental journey!

I'm smiling back.
Truth does find its way to our hearts, if we simply let it in. Nice write.
