to the mystical land of the Gods...

to the mystical land of the Gods…

Beating of drums rising high in the sky
Sounding the tribute of a troubled humanity
Asking for the divine intervention
To shower his blessings dissolved in the rain…

Jingling of bells musically floating up
Singing the song of a praying humanity
Reaching out for the hand of the Creator
To resolve the tussles of the daily grind…

Song in His praise mouthed in unison
With a clapping of hope and joy
Welcoming the arrival of His Lordship
To reside with us as the long awaited guest…

with a promise of return...

Days pass and the time to depart arrives
Song, chant, dance and drums lead the way
Followed by the sea of humanity on the way
To the ocean for a final descent with a promise of return…

In the sound of silence I pray
With a quiet murmur of thoughts
Hope and faith alive, waiting for His last embrace
To lead me to the mystical land of the Gods…
