Have you come to my house? – There is such celebration in the universe! If not Why such resplendent colors in the flowers? Why such powerful music in the sky? Why such sweet scent in the air? You have shown me the pain of joy and of suffering. You have given me access to your journey towards clarity. You have treaded lightly on my many wounds with your light feet, Caressed them with your gentle music – And arrived at the doorstep of my life.
