“A poem on a poem” – a key to the Rubaiyat

June 23, 2014

32bulv21220scfCharles Mugleston has sent us this poem about the Rubaiyat.  He has also provided the following comment on the raison d’etre  of the poem.

‘Time and again, I hear people say about The Ruba’iya’t “Yes, I read it a long time ago, but I didn’t understand it “  so – a Key !

In the poem we find the narrator saying  “There was a door to which I found no key…” then, later on with growing realization… “Of my Base Metal may be filed a key, that shall unlock the Door…” so, keys are useful – unless you forget them ! and I wished to provide a poem –  to provide a key to the poem to help people appreciate it for what it is – a Spiritual Classic of the First Order.

I hope the poem provides the first half turn – and it is up the reader with due reflection to turn it full circle…’

The Ruba’iya’t of Omar Khayya’m

(A poem on a poem)

Weaving mystical metaphors
Ideas Divine – Gods awaken
In this Soul of mine
Persian carpets of Light – Life – Love
Untying lies – fly through
Jewelled doors opening Paradise
Resonance NOW Realization,
Rolls Royce of reasoned
Words glide silently
As the Mind seeking finds
Itself – showering stars
Of Illumination
Above penetrates Below
so, Creation
Remembrance – JOY – Elevation
