When I reached David’s Point
There was an epic change of scene,
Trees rustled with a tune, water danced drunk,
Light scintillated unblinkingly, time stilled echoingly.
Moments melted into hours
And then I woke from the reverie,
The world looked eerily different,
I felt possessed,
The door of eternity seemed to have opened a crack.
I melted into the scene,
Slowly losing my earlier identity,
There was no self but harmony with universe,
No purpose but the word of God.
I looked at the world I left behind,
It seemed unreal and lifeless,
I wondered why I lived there,
Then why so long?
