Before you open dreaming eyes,
Before the very first of times
Of being born, you drift inside
your mother’s ocean,
Where light and free, in a stirring world,
Exploring subtle wind and turn,
You’re getting ready for the stage
of endless motion.
You crawl to walk, and walk to run,
Euphoric happiness in one,
A mere effort of a hand,
of reaching higher,
The self-instilling act of truth,
Of beauty in a simple move –
A part of universal art,
and space entire.
Your body in a cosmic dance
Perfected by a graceful stance,
Infused with love of ancient souls
from all dimensions.
Plasticity of daring dreams
Is framing us into the beings,
As artists of the infinite ascension.
Perfection is an artful way,
To feel and think, to do and say,
Accept to be the best you can aspire,
So you can move through calm and storm,
Creating pure dance and form,
To let the vision come to life
and to inspire.
