Song 44

I have lost your name

In
The
Palace
Of

In the dark of the dark

Where you take off your mask

Dim
The
Light

To

Me
Sight

Where the love breeze stirs

In our castle so true

Burning

Whakapapa: this poem is in the Bhakti tradition. Bhakti yoga is the path of love and ecstasy where the devotee passionately seeks the with Beloved with her/his heart. Poets who have written in the Bhakti style include; Mirabai, Rumi, Hafiz & John of the Cross. There are a number of ‘sayings’ of the Self influencing the poem: ‘go into the night of nights,’ 3/1/13 ‘you’ve entered my Self,’ & ‘the pathless one,’ 11/1/13 & ‘beyond understanding’ 12/1/13. The poem is also influenced by a recent dream in which I entered an ancient castle.
