Ice Tree: By Gloria Lee

Ice Tree

Frozen light silvers on black lines,
Yes, this ice is on fire!
Steam smokes the tree’s air,
Saying, “Here!” A distant sun burns time.

The satsangh bell rings anew.
First, hear it unto silence return.
If, for the eternal you yearn,
Ice on fire is one view.

____________________
Written for Harsha, on the inauguration of his Satsangh list, recalling
with great joy his words: “The ice melts when it is time.”

One thought on “Ice Tree: By Gloria Lee

  1. Ah so beautiful- : ‘Yes, this ice is on fire!’
    To look up in the winter sky,
    Frozen white moon embracing the white cloud,
    The entire cosmos washed in silver,
    And i am reborn as a moonbeam!!!

    -Much Love
    Aparna
