“An Ode to my Beloved”
I can see you
I can feel you
And i can smell you
Oh supreme Goddess
Your divine fragrance is strong….
For your blooming spring flowers
Entrance my senses
And the glorious blue mountains
In whom you take your exalted form
Stirs something deep within me
That is so primal
And all knowing….
Oh, Eternal Goddess of truth and righteousness
How can I possibly ascend your rarefied peaks
When my own soul is still undeserving
Of your inextinguishable love?
