Poems and Perspectives
Many a moments bloom before me
I pass them uninterested.
Pearls fall in torrents from heaven
And facing an oblivious awareness,
Disappointedly, vapour back.
The ticking of the clocks,
The bells in the schools
Alarm all, in an awareness
Of time gushing by
Enticing opportunities, that are swept away
Into the fatal mouth of the beautiful past.
Yet, Pearls caressing the cheek of Time
As glistening drops,
Are ruthlessly wiped away in ignorance….
Turning my back to the mortal ground,
I turn towards the vast expanse of nothingness.
Turning my back to everything,
I turn towards nothingness.
Lying on the dewy carpet of Mother Earth,
I turn my eyes to the Father Above.
I see, and see nothing,
Yet find everything in that nothingness.
Everything it contains and
Is contained in everything.
Gazing persistently, entranced -
At His majesty,
My soul begins to breathe
Spreading wide, engulfing everything,
I realise Eternal Truths in that moment.
Gently whiffing through the air
My breath merges with the breeze -
I am one with the Divine.
Gazing at that expanse -
I feel a part of nothing -
And everything, at once.
The sun is setting the same way, in the same direction it sets everyday… yet, today, it seems like something is setting with it, sinking down in the deep, dark abyss.
