[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] A Sonnet and a Musical Composition: Clear Thought (mp3)
(Minghui.org) In honor of the World Falun Dafa Day, I would like to submit the following:
“Clear Thought” (mp3) - a song composed by Dafa disciples, which I am singing with instrumental accompaniment. I have poetically transposed the lyrics into English.
“Grand Mercy's Blossoms” - A Petrarchan sonnet about Dafa disciples' efforts to save sentient beings amidst the persecution in this sinful world.
As life drifts like a dream to vanish in a flashWith world’s delights and woes, mere whirls of smoke and ash,The will grows diamond-strong, to shed each human flaw.Above delusion’s mist rise those who gain the Law.
Grand Mercy’s Blossoms
Dedicated to all who cherish Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance.
Across the night of seething sin that shrouds the world,When man, entranced, walks down a road of no return,A beam of Truth shines forth – the Dawn for which souls yearn...Cascades of Lotus flowers, suddenly unfurled,Give off Compassion’s warmth in streams of sunlight, pearledWith Tolerance’s dew, to herald a new turnFor man to take... Yet, soon, gloom’s raging storms are hurledUpon the land, to cast all hopes into its urn.
Though spurned and crushed, the blossoms’ saving grace enduresBeyond death’s reach; for but a wisp of smoke is death,While Lotus hearts gain endless bloom before the eyesOf He who turns Creation’s Wheel, whose thought securesMankind’s unfolding path. Upon the night’s last breath,Law’s light revives each life as future’s realms arise.
