Millions of Candles

I saw millions of candles were lit in the sky

Singing, laughing elatedly;

And with their luminous light

blessing every particle of existence that was dancing

To form a mighty evidence of the Supreme


Seriously, my mystical dreams seemed to have been illusionary

But they were real!


The temple is a dancing floor;

The church is a dancing floor;

The mosque is a dancing floor;

The synagogue is a dancing floor;

Where every particle of existence dances rhythmically

Under the sublime lights of

The millions of candles in the sky


When every particle of existence dances

Under the lights of divinity

No living soul will be tormented

No broken heart will be left unamended

No wandering flesh will be let harmed

Because everything, and everyone is in a huge celebration!
