Imagine life as one long dark night
Inconceivable, a  life sans Light

Heat came with the Light
The earth and the oceans
giant sinks made with great insight

The light turned green with leaves
giving birth to thousands of trees
that served to keep very clean
the air for life to breathe in

The trees also made flowers
and fruits as food in their bowers
to transmit the Light and heat
to diverse forms of hearts that beat


Recycling was cleverly inbuilt
Light, a genius to the hilt

But alas arrived on the scene
the naked ape in all his sheen
He  was the proverbial monkey wrench
born with a fist that he would often clench

Although he arrived
late on the stage
the ape thrived
under the delusion
he was all the rage!

Morning and evening
this biped walked
tall his shadows
made by the Light
and foolishly thought
he  was bigger than
The Light


With his puny little brain
this  ape wore a blinker
And started to tinker
calling himself a thinker


Many inventions he
did make
his own unquenchable
thirst to slake

he never thought beyond
the me
for he was all
he wanted to see!

Now  the modern ape dwells
in a world
of his thoughts

dark are his thoughts
for his mind is a closed sky
he lives unconscious
always in deep slumber
till the day he goes under

What a wasted life
he leads
Without living the life
of consciousness
given only to him
by the Light!

Translation

what night what day
what sun what moon
what hunger what thirst
what loneliness what crowds
what tree what fruit
what heaven what earth
what lie what truth
what anguish what conflict
what chakra (cycle of life), what maze
what victory, what loss
what love, what maaya (illusion)

you are in every color
you are in every form
you are within
and you are without
you are in every atom
only you, only you


you are mind, you are the heart
you are the soul, you are the absolute consciousness
you are the journey, you are the destination
you are belief, you are disbelief
you are  friend you are  love
you are  life, you are death
you are time, you are infinity
you are happiness, you are bliss

you are the creation and
you are the creator
you are in every atom
only you, only you

Riveting was his gaze
disturbed my response
my heart skipped a beat
did he  think I would cheat
or make a hasty retreat
taut was the silence
before I showed him my moves
he caught on a bit late
as I softly whispered
check! my  dear mate!

I gaze in raptures
at your bright beautiful face
and my heart brims with joy
how lucky I am to see
the full moon every night
VENUS62 Feb 2015
lost in the tinkle
of your green glass bangles
I watch days go by
eager to return to you
I wish for wings to fly
VENUS62 Feb 2015
Clad in ochre red
with *pallu over your head
you stepped into my heart
and became my muse,
my poetry and my art
VENUS62 Feb 2015
I wonder
how many moons shall pass
before you breathe in
the fragrance of Jasmine,
as you unbraid my tresses
