‘The Returning’ The Society December 6, 2012 Poetry 2 Comments A Squinting gaze through the fog and the haze A glimpse at a shimmer while in a daze Brief yet bright, its beauty light is luring Something has gotten the spirit stirring Awaken you, my forgotten real goal Time to return to the home of my soul Finding a path, joyfully shedding tears Waiting for oh, so many countless years Now every new moment is coming so fast Arriving more beautiful than the last Awakening here on a righteous way Deviance is loosing places to stay While the wind and waves continue to come The challenges begin to drum and drum Pounding again and again and again Breaking the heart and mind, bearing the pain Seeing a glimpse of true higher purity This space and time, shocking absurdity Shedding all emotions, climbing higher Letting go desires, never tire Heart expands filling with divine mercy Amidst benevolence able to see Divine endurance waits ever longer Gives one cause to pause, and simply ponder The path ones walked and the path up ahead Some indeed made it, some have fallen dead So many beings here there fly and fall Who can truly rise, stand above it all Unshaken diligence, a new being Through true cultivation, one is seeing Pain and suffering, visions of beauty Trials and virtue builds divinity Continued purging to the perfection Meeting complete, final consummation Standing with dignity firm, tall and stern One of heaven’s beings has returned By Zenon Dolnyckyj: I am a 32-year-old Canadian living in New York City. I am a health and fitness professional. This poem is inspired from my practice in Falun Gong.
