Ineffable tango

Dara S. Esfandiary

Take my hand and let our tango upon the clouds of the heavens begin...
White as virgin snow the astral stage lays a trance for the purity of this dance,
Release! Release from the bondage of inhibition and the fickleness of chance...

Take my hand and let our tango upon the clouds of the heavens begin...
Refulgent as our one inflamed heart; helpless in the whirling sea of tender's kiss,
A mystical journey to the depths of passion frees us in a timeless moment of bliss...

Take my hand and let our tango upon the clouds of the heavens begin...
Longing for the infinity of space, we drown in the intimacy of a glorious embrace,
Lips join the prance of blazing romance -- flaming each and every holy place...

Take my hand and let our tango upon the clouds of the heavens begin...
Elusive as the aura of the flightiest soul, yet more erect than the mightiest wall,
One cemented from two – the spirits howl the first symphony of the immortal...

Take my hand and let our tango upon the clouds of the heavens begin...
Brimming with tears of life, torrential rains tease the forbidden forests parched below...
Lightening strikes a thunderous rumble of the rapturous tumble in this, a divine tango...

Take my hand without despair for our tango is now a place of prayer...
Clouds become buoyant as we bask in the torrid heat... a gentle hush fills the air...
Twinkling of nirvana's dew, the starry Eye dilates the greatest mystery of nature...

Take my hand without despair for our tango is now a place of prayer...
Bells ring as angels roar with odes of benediction to the vibrant tapestry of love...
Of one dance the ineffable fairytale is born, and more clouds begin to gather above...

Take my hand and let our tango upon the clouds of the heavens begin...
