Spiritually deaf and mute and blind
Not smelling nor tasting fruits divine
Untapped senses buried deep inside
Void of knowledge deep and wide

Open the door of a chasm so deep
Behold the wonders beyond and weep
Weep for a joy, wonderful indeed
Grown to blossom from a sacred seed

Smell the blossom and taste the fruit
Hear the sound of the farthest flute
Speak of a beauty felt deep within
Let a touch from without come in

See a beauty not shown to the eye
Feel a wind not blown in the sky
Breathe in air unknown by the lung
Hear a song in a tone never sung
