Krishnapriya Jun 2
I lift my heart
To the heavens
And a gift falls
Within
Poetry

I wonder at the words
The magic of the pen
Wisdom of the heavens

My mind
Rises up
To zones of clarity
With poetry

My heart
Dances
In the gentle music
Of poetry

I bow down
To the heavens
I bow down
To magic
I bow down to life
As poetry
Krishnapriya Apr 27
Life
Is more precious
Than likes
Dislikes, fun, pleasure
Satisfaction
Of the mind

A succulent slice
Of the fruit of peace
From the
Garden of eternity
This moment complete
Beyond recognition
In the stillness
Of forever

Holding life
In my hands
Silence
In my mind
Peace
In my heart
I take a tiny step
Towards You
Dancing in the moonbeams
Of love
Krishnapriya Apr 24
Gorgeous
Big
Juicy
Raindrops

Isn't it time?
For You to come?

Drink up the tears
Of my heart

Hold me
In Your arms
wrapped tightly
with rainbows
All around
First rainfall of the season
Krishnapriya Apr 17
Behind the mask
I feel my warm breath
Grateful
For the Grace of life

Behind the mask
I don’t need
To speak so much
Grateful
For the Grace of Silence

Behind the mask
I see her smile
In her eyes
Grateful
For the Grace of smiles

Behind the mask
We hug
With smiles
Grateful
For Grace of hugging eyes

Behind the mask
I see all of creation
In the lap of Mother Earth
Hiding
From themselves
Suffering
Behind masks
I pray
Grateful
For the Grace of prayer

I pray
For front line workers
Leaders of nations
Poor and hungry
Sick and dying

I pray
For people and plants
Gardens and dungeons
Earth and skies

I pray
With folded hands
Streaming tears
Wetting my mask
Grateful
To you
For the Grace of reading
wearing masks for Covid and looking out at the world of masks, fear, tears and hope.
Krishnapriya Apr 17
I accept
Your judgement of me
As true
In your view
And
Let it wash over
As a spring drizzle

For you, me
And all creation
Thoughts, views, emotions
Are just that

A drizzle
Star dust
Fleeting fragrance
Light feather
Seeking and living
Unbeknownst
To even ourselves
In the sweet embrace
Of love
Krishnapriya Apr 17
I seek
Purity
Simplicity
Of my heart
My very Being

She smiles at me
As flowers
Calls me
With bird song
Cries with me
As raindrops
Hides from me
As rainbows

"I am as you
Everywhere
And always,"
She whispers
In love, as love
Forever

Pure
Simple
Still
Being
Krishnapriya Apr 17
Every life journey
Is a journey of love
Some love a special person
Some their family
Village,  country,
Nature, arts, culture
Science, knowledge
Inventions, ideology,
Religion,
God

Yet why?
these boxes
Special people, times, places
Let go
Expand

Let love arrive
Dance
In every smile
Glance
Breath
Open heart
Pure existence
Love eternal
