Tonight, all those stars in your sky Express themselves in the midst of my life. Your universe has come running towards me – In me, it has fallen surrendered. Every flower from your orchard, Finds fruition in my body. All the joy from every direction Has gained suddenly in rich aroma – Inside my heart, together, They stir up an image of your temple. I do not know anyone anywhere anymore tonight. I cannot hear any sound from any voice tonight. The breath of this universe fills up my breast And tonight, the music from my flute lilts.
