On a boat of songs

(185)  Diner aloy ganer tarii

In the light of day, a boat of songs
I floated toward the distant sky
So that in darkness You
I might get nearby.

With the undulation of waves, a rhythm emerges;
It seemed to pacify my mind.
You went to a distant place,
Leaving only footprints on all sides behind.

Today, with starsong, mind, and earnest desire,
Myself I will row that flower-fragrant boat.

  1. A sweet story of longing and, ultimately, sacrifice. The imagery and the layers of meaning are incomparable. All of life and death, physicality and spirituality, are encompassed in this beautiful, mystic song.
