The Holy Bath

I am a prisoner
self caged
in the noise of citadel,
I live on the layer
bereft of stillness.
In the vile moments
useless thoughts
get tangled in lair
making roaring maze
it its infinitude.
Fragrance of silence is
unknown to my senses.
I love to drink
the herald of ecstasy
conjuring all passion
from my isolated dream.

However I long to rest
in the whirlpool of silence
enjoying bounteousness.
I yearn to dance
in the sea of silence
where silence slice noise
with such precision
and waves of silence
lashing noise out of mind’s shore
as if rejecting waste.
I am getting drench mighty
in the divine sea.

My first holy bath
I had with reverence.
I am a free soul reborn
in the spiritual swirl..
