Seat the sheer world



Seat the sheer world
In a layover in my heart --
The stars by night, 
The sun by day,
Tapestries of shade and light,
Every poetry in the sky.

All the lilts from the cosmic lute
Make them resonate within.

All joy, all sorrow 
Whether soft 
Whether stern,
Like a bud, like a gale,
Make them evoke, educe,
Your divine intention, 
Your amazing grace.

Vein of lightning



Vein of lightning,

A sudden sight,
An image lost and found,
You charge the storm with a reeling presence 
You induce an ambling agony.

Struck with anonymous passion
The storm becomes a seeker,
Drifting, delving, near and far.
You flash, content to watch it rove
With silent laughter.

The sky deepens, the river wedges
Waves in a vehement quest
With nameless desires,
Dreams, unrealized.

The arbors press against the sky
Embracing despair,
Tears of suffering 
Hovering in the horizon.

A lilting sweetness resonates within


Modhuro modhuro dhoni baje

 A lilting sweetness resonates in the lotus pond
 Within my own heart
 My secret muse, my diva, sits quietly playing her lute
Her music moulds missives with eternity,
An image bathed in golden aura
Somewhere beyond my core.
In a perennial cycle of spring, of holy succulence,
In every breath, a cuckoo submerges me with her songs,
My being inhales the divine aroma like a honey bee
And drunkenly s
urrenders at her feet.
Come my goddess, 
For me to gaze at you with my eyes in pure light,
For you to be expressed beyond my soul,
To be felt as a tangible presence beyond
This enchanting, somber allusion.
