To Swami Girijatmananda

You'd embroidered the Inferno
sewn with the thread
of supple beauty,
endowed Ganguria
with philosophical
profundity and great altitude
of enlightenment.
You'd reconciled
an old skirmish
between disdain
and phobia.
O God, you made
Ganguria an ultimate abode
decked with platonic ideal
of love and mosaic complexion.

Red Granite

Red Granite

Listen closely and hear

To know what the dawn needs

 

Tired eyes and a drifting thought

You must be astronaut sat upon God’s knees

 

Closer to hear

What the colors of dawn needs

 

Poppyseed fields at the foot of a valley

The crimson of God’s teeth

The Day The Seeds Fell

 

The blue sky yawned

And out they came

As the mortal hoard 

Looked for blame

 

It's us! It's them!

It's God's fair hand

His silence broken

To make a stand!

 

Some cowered. Some ran

Some stood in awe

As tears of seeds

Filled Earth's floor

 

For exactly 6 hours

The seeds were sown

For the 7th

Time stood alone

 

Leaves stopped in flutter

Sometimes it feels like the world is falling apart

Sometimes it feels like no matter how hard you try, you just keep getting brought down

You tell yourself that everything is going to be alright

You tell yourself that you will survive

You look for a sign, anything to tell you that you are going down the right path

You pray to God that he gives you the strength to carry on

And jus...

Blue Eyes

Blue as the sky above

Your eyes shine so bright like the morning light

I was scared to let you in my heart

I was scared  that this was going to be too hard 

I was scared to fall 

But your blue eyes, that shine so bright 

Gave me hope, gave me a reason to believe, and fight

I look at you with awe

Wondering where you have been and what you have done

And I pray to God

Psychosis

It’s all a clue.

I’m the singular factor:

a catalyst,

a cosmic,

reactive component.

God and I have an understanding about truth.

Lost

When you left, you took a piece of my heart

When you left, my whole world came tumbling down

I became so lost

I was left in the dark

You took with you my light 

When you left, I learned to fight

I learned to navigate this world without you by my side

I learned to be strong to no longer rely on your love

You thought I was weak,

For feeling too much

Now, you're the one ...

Hello, how are you today: upper,middle,lower— class.
front, and center.
I’d like to think if a kid were to get up and say I can’t stand this, then the teacher would get behind them in an orderly fashion.
side by side, classroom C-3 parts in the middle of the day, to make their way back to their seat,
show and tells of mommy and me– are always well received.

Healing

Broken feeling all alone

The dark surrounds you and all is still 

Time stops ticking 

Your heart no longer wants to beat, it no longer wants to live 

You hear a voice whisper 

You hear a voice call your name 

You fall on your knees close your eyes and pray 

You feel his strength 

You hear his voice say , "No more!"

God says , "Rise and grow!"

Have COURAGE to let go......

Light

Sometimes I wonder if you ever loved me

I wonder if you ever felt the way I felt for you

Sometimes I wonder why you stayed by my side so long 

Why did you watch my light slowly die

And then blamed me when it was all gone

Sometimes I wonder why did you fall in love with someone else when you had somone by your side who gave you all her life who gave you her heart

Then I realize th...
