Love in the Masquerade Ball

The world is full of beautiful things until an old man
with a beard came into my life and set my heart aflame
with longing and made it pregnant with love. How can
I look at the loveliness around me, how can I see it,
if it hides the face of my Lover?

We are tempted away from what we value the most insignificant things.

The face of your Lover is the beauty and loveliness of the world.

Excuse me...

by the most insignificant things.

Anonymous,

Look deeper, and you will go beyond just "ok".

But, thank you for sharing your thoughts. :)

Mossy,

There are lots of distractions.

Hi Klaus,

I think the poet was talking about maya. It is maya that hides the face of "God".

On the other hand, I cannot deny that this world is part of the Whole. Even an illusion is not separate.

What do you think?

It's a pair-a-docks.

Klaus,

I thought it was Dockers!
