  • The moment you have in your heart this
    extraordinary thing called love and feel the
    depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will
    discover that for you the world is transformed.

    Jiddu Krishnamurti


    I stroll through shadowed gardens, meditate

    among hibiscus, fragrant roses, ferns.

    Serene white swans glide on their jade green sea.

    This is a sanctuary for all souls,

    who need a refuge from our busy world,

    with devas in an atmosphere Divine.

    Symbols abound, inviting me to see

    beyond the masks of this reality,

    I see Love everywhere, but cannot find,

    A metaphor to properly convey

    the sacred silence of this lakeside day.
