Hi, Donna, and welcome to the board! I don't know if you've ever had a mystical experience or not, but it is hard as HELL to translate into language! (Bernini came close with his "Ecstacy of St Theresa, but that doesn't count, because it's stone!) Just one more reason to love "Melancholy"--as if we needed it!
Let me guide myself with the blue, forked torch of this flower
down the darker and darker stairs where blue is darkened on blueness
even where Persephone goes, just now, from the frosted September
to the sightless realm where darkness was awake upon the dark
