I Couldn’t Help But Smile.

Via on Jul 31, 2013


A lyrical Om

Voices of many

Stretching the expansiveness

of a vibrational hum


Time suspended

Our breathing, a union

Lifting the tired and confused

Carrying hearts

Where spaces are torn

A joyful energy,

Peaceful too

Circulating the room the walls disappeared

Voices blended with nature

A rapturous synergy

Centered at the heart


An unconditional universal source

An infinite loop of



And the heavens
