The Aesthetic Feast
My insight penetrates the surroundings
of a long darkened hallway.
Toward the end, -a light-infused vision,
-the figure of a flower-headed woman.
She of hinted rewards, beckons to me.
Outstretched arms welcome me
into her infinite artistic world of
unspeakable delights too delicious to utter.
Sublime & sinful experiences
Invade all my aesthetic senses.
Alas, she is the self-same spirit
of the universal lover –Krshna –without religion.
I am transported weightless
-shown the infinite creations
of ecstatic & fluid realities of existence.
I release myself and grasp the spectacles.
Descarte said… “I think, therefore I am”.
What my mind apprehends is just as real
in experience, as the weight of an anvil
dropped upon the existential head of Sartre.
I explode with aesthetic joy at all these
sensory pleasures –thanking the irreligious
Great Creator within whom, all contradictions
of infinite existence, co-exist in harmony.
I have experienced many forms of
ecstacies within all the arts
which are god-given to enjoy within
our shells, harming no one,
to experience Heaven on Earth
through the infinite aesthetic sensation.
Artistic Beauty is the proof of god
-and Art is my connection -my religion.
