Harvest

Harvest

The mind’s garden is fertile
As we sow, so shall we reap
A good seed produces a smile
A bad one makes us weep

Resentment leads to anger
Prejudice promotes hatred
Fear is a synonym for danger
Guilt kills before we’re dead

Doubts raise uncertainty
Envy is the root of pain
Blame generates toxicity
Is there anything we gain?

To avoid a harvest of weeds
We must plant noble seeds
Like those of genuine love
Blessed with grace from above

Love dissolves all sadness
Helps us deal with madness
Wipes away all the gloom
Causes the garden to bloom

So what would we rather breed,
A love seed or a hostile weed?

In search of myself

In search of myself

One day I went missing
As I began searching
I kept reminiscing
Where was I last seen perching?

I knew I needed help
So my friends I sought out
But no one heard my yelp
Could no one hear me shout?

I looked everywhere I could
All corners I explored
But my efforts were no good
How could I be so ignored?

I turned to the last resort
And started praying to God
Maybe He’ll be my escort
Did He and I make a good squad?

When we finally traced me
I was sitting in HER heart
Cosy, smiling and free
Can’t I live here and never depart?

Can’t I remain lost?

When I first saw you

When I first saw you

When I first saw you,
My soul ran to hug yours
Though I kept staring,
Worried about social uproars

When I first saw you,
My heart skipped a beat or two,
While I looked poised,
I kept thinking what to do?

When I first saw you,
My mind rejected my heart’s plea
But my soul knew
I was born to love you amply

When I first saw you,
I knew it wasn’t the first time
As my soul remembered
memories from another lifetime

Expressing love

Expressing love

I run my hands through her hair
Then stroke her head gently
telling silently
how much I care

I place her hand in my palm
Then place it on my heart
singing softly
my life’s psalm

I lay her cheeks next to mine
Then kiss the tip of her nose
expressing quietly
my love divine

I pull her slowly with my arms
Then bring her closer to me
disclosing lightly
my hidden charms

I whisper faintly in her ears
Then hum a sweet melody
dismissing firmly
all her fears

I gaze deeply into her eyes
Then drown her in mine
revealing slowly
my soul’s surprise

I take her easily into space
Then show her eternity
exposing finally
God’s real face

Choosing Now

Choosing Now

The past is a trail left behind
The future cannot be defined
Only the present is aligned
with my heart, soul and mind

Life is not a throw of dice
For I have the gift of choice
I can either be sad or rejoice
Be silent or air my voice

I pray for having the wisdom
The vision and the freedom
To seek God’s rich kingdom
Over plain Earthly stardom

I don’t belong to this world
That has from eons whirled
Keeping me coiled and curled
Now it’s time I unfurled

Infinity is my destination
My journey’s ultimate station
All else is a false notion
Only my ego’s perception

So I’ll give up my past, I vow
And future’s course I’ll allow
While I choose the eternal now
In the company of the Tao

Chosen One

Chosen One

An inexplicable energy
flows through me
An indefinable feeling
surging like sea

A miraculous power
augments my core
A magical touch
boosts it some more

A sacred flame
ignites the soul
A blissful glow
lights up the whole

What a blessing it is
to be the chosen one
How divine I feel
to be HIS beloved son

Nirvana

Nirvana

Travelling in time,
Can I step into a parallel universe?
Drifting in space,
Can I escape this life of a curse?

Delving deeper,
Can I decode what is THE plan?
Probing further,
Can I measure the distance to span?

Leaving this plane,
Can I fly into the endless sky?
Shunting this soil,
Can I gain the view of a bird’s eye?

Releasing all,
Can I end this existential course?
Liberating me,
Can I unite with the ultimate source?
