Enlighten!

As I type
every syllable
reveals…
things which are
newer still
the tips of my fingers
touch and glow
and newer meanings
unfold…
every moment
every breathe
every “sip”
I know…
reveals
and rejuvenates
lightens my being
enlightens my soul
now here
when you read this
then too…
to be open
to receive
and perceive
is the way to lighten
enlighten
and fly
for an eternity…


Soul : A drop of the ocean of love

Soul to Soul
as we speak
different languages n tongues,
one thing binds us all within,
love and its beauty
radiating from small selfless acts
and shown in radiant smiles,
Soul to soul
when we see
shall all hatred be gone,
to respect and love
our differences
and to sing along
odes to beauty
that’s within
and to ONE all around
Soul to soul
let us love
them, you, n me!


Immortal

The veil, has shrouded ‘our’ memories of
what ‘we’ are…
‘You’ and I’ in our formless form,
have been and shall remain…
close your eyes
and open ‘yours’
and you shall ‘see’…
‘we’ were the sparks
in the skulls they dig
and proclaim it a link
in the chain of evolution…
‘we’ are the sparks
that have witnessed all…
from mammoths and yeti,
to the comp and car…
‘we’ shall be, to witness more
from re-igniting the sun
to black hole cars…
‘you’ and ‘me’
were, are, and shall remain
to see the sparkles
in His own ‘eyes’.


Earth, again?

 

Earth is mine
time and again as i’ve treaded
eons past and to come
I shall tread again…
It bore me and cuddled
it lifted me and held
taught me and trained
shall rest in its bosom again…

I’ve tasted it
and Devaki saw
the universe looking for mud
when as Ganga
I had touched
and it began to sway
when a chunk of it
I held and flew
for Laxman to survive
when my Vaman feet
covered it all
and it breathed in respite…

its given me all
a mother’s lap
a father’s heart
a brother’s support
a sisters’s company
a lover’s embrace
a child’s exuberence…

I’ve fed it my sweat
I’ve fed it my blood
and it gave grains in return
I’ve stomped it,
I’ve defiled it
it still held me with concern
I’ve left it
I’ve flown away
to look at it in awe
everytime I’ve done a thing
it always witnessed all…

Now as I write
I can feel
its warmth under my soles
and when you read
my lines you shall
feel its care in your souls…

shall love to come back yet again, and again, and again…


Illuminating me…

 

Have been illuminating ever since,

sometimes bright sometimes dim.
but light within is always aglow,
for lit it is by the Only Glow.

A mere reflection a sparkle of the Spark,
been here long even before the famous ark.
and shall remain and never be put out,
my Source is eternal, I do not doubt.

At crossroads we are, from age to age,
for The eternal, its just a page,
The energy IS, am but its sparkling sight,
illuminating and burning, in Eternal delight.

May the delight be yours and everyones!


Mind…

Everything manifest
and not manifest
is but a thought…
of the ONE

One thought of ONE
and we are
millions of our thoughts
isn’t still One

In whose mind is who
or who minds who
in ONE we are
or are we One?


Why did you light a Candle?

I lit a candle as

lights went out

due to the storm raging out…

…and also within

for a child was afraid

of the dark

and couldn’t sleep

so I lit a candle

amidst the storm

and kept it alive

sheltering it from

ravishing winds

of hate and prejudice

with only my

fragile old self

for the child

for it may sleep

in peace

and awaken afresh

with a smile

as new as a sunrise

everyday…
