539. Life

In this rare incarnation of mine
I decided and planned to see the lives of God,
Heaven, earth and man.

I have already seen man-life.
It is nothing but a song
Of deathless destruction-night.

I have already seen the life
Of earth, too.
It is nothing but teeming clouds.

I am now seeing the life of Heaven,
Which is building my life-altar
To reach the transcendental Heights.

I shall soon be seeing the life of God,
Which will discover the Zenith-perfection-light
Founded on my acceptance-might.
