Music of Dawn by Vatsala Radhakeesoon

I see big, small, minute circles
as I close my eyes,
Circles and circles are everywhere,
swirls, swirls my soul around them,
They play the music of dawn –
Silence isn’t sound-less,
It can be heard solely
with the ears of the soul
detached from the mundane,
unbound by the illusive permanence

The music of dawn
comes from the  notes  of the harp
played by the Divine,
It calms the mind
by injecting positive thoughts,
It pacifies the heart
by discarding the broken parts,
It enlightens the soul
by drawing us closer
to the light supreme

I plunge, plunge
in the music of dawn,
I feel free, liberated
from the mask imposed,
I feel relieved, unburdened
from the constraints, all-vain
To the music of dawn
dances the genuine, true self –
The self that is not limited
by the common “Me” and “I”,
The self that expands, grows,
unifies with a whole,
The self that becomes
blissful music itself,
The self that dwells permanently
as inner peace within
the entire creation,
The self that is the seed
of universal love.
