Aria of Aries birth she be
An inner child deemed destiny
A song, a flame, playful desire
She ever the spark, the heartfelt fire
A crown she braids of daisies white
Holding within its golden light
And if a moment veiled in despair
Calls she to God's knowing care
In faith and love she beckons to me
Whispers of a song, this soul free.

Child Braiding A Crown, Oil on canvas, 1874, William-Adolphe Bouguereau, 1825-1905.
"The soul is revealed when you feel centered; your mind is clear; you have the sensation that time has stopped; you suddenly feel free of boundaries; you are keenly self-aware; you feel merged with another person, either in love or silent communication; you feel untouched by aging and change; you feel blissful and ecstatic; you have an intuitive flash that turns out to be true; you somehow know what is going to happen; you sense the truth; you feel supremely loved or absolutely safe." Adapted from Life After Death: The Burden of Proof, by Deepak Chopra (Harmony Books, 2006).
