Poem: O My Beloved! In Your Arms Is My World

Bliss . . .

Source

Let Your Wings Be Free . . .

"My heart, like a vermillion kite, rises into a perennial land of sweet aspirations. I let myself loose, closing my eyes. Let it go… let’s see where it goes… Unless you get ravelled, how will you taste the joy of being unravelled? Let it rise, let it fly, let it soar in the sky… Let it grace the luscious winds, let the morning dawn embrace the Soul... Let your wings be free… be free… be free." - Surabhi Kaura

On the palms of this tranquil night,

The moon glows, radiating so bright,

As I remain absorbed in your cherubic aura;

Like a dewy soil adorns the tender monsoons.


Tell me, O’ Maharaj! Why is Love so magnanimous?

That we mislay our hunger and sleep,

And when sore, we forgive and forget

Those usual human frailties in others;

Is Love blind or is it kind?

I know neither of these terrestrial trumpets,

Yet I know of the Divine music

That echoes in the supernal sanctum

Of a loving devotee.


There is an uncanny place,

A place beyond the stellar galaxies;

Over there, resides my Beloved-Supreme,

He who gently opens the knots of my Heart,

Lifting my spirit up and caressing my wings

With His infinite charm and beauty...

It is then that I say to myself,

“By God! What an unflinching energy!”


Ah! Grace… sweet, compassionate grace!

True are the words by the wise old men,

That a staunch prayer never yields

Before the prodigious thorns and thistles,

For it perpetuates to grow… to rise… to soar

In the ceaseless cycle of life and death –

An immortal Soul’s sojourn…


O my Beloved! In your arms is my world...

Lo! Seeing your chivalrous smile,

The fragrant hyacinths became drunk tonight…

Every image of yours becomes an auspicious sight;

Like a solemn pledge, fulfilling one thousand dreams,

O' Sailor! Come! Come!

Take me to His Golden shore,

Where I see a splendid sunrise.

Surabhi, Wah wah. Beauty of words.

My inspiration from your poetry...

The wait, doesn't seize.

Yet, What a beautiful sunrise,

it would be,

Where our horizons, would meet.

Tell me, it's would be true.

That the wishes would be heard for sure.

A lost bird? I like that. Lol.

This poem is a masterpiece and probably your best from my standpoint, as you have addressed it to my Beloved, my Eternity's all, my Dearest Love-Delight. Woven with exceptional beauty and full of loftiness and depth.

Sublime and a poem expressing and manifesting the epitome of God's Love, in the fingers of the Artiste par excellence. Glory be! Jai Sri Krishna! Jai Surabhi.

I am very proud of you, O Chela.

A beautiful poem exhibiting spiritual love in its full bloom! And one can imagine how beautiful is your heart when you compose such a poem! Very few have this eternal and inner beauty Surabhi and you are blessed and I wish you to stay blessed.

By the way 'aaj jaane ki jidd na karo---' is one of my favourites.

Thanks for sharing! Have a blessed day!

Manatita,

Yes, a lost bird. Sometimes I like to make others laugh until they eventually fall on the floor, holding their bellies with an uncontrollable laughter. Lol.

Thank you for your thought-provoking feedback, Acharaya. I wrote this poem keeping an image of my Guru Huzur Maharaj ji in mind. I came up with the title fairly quickly, and then it just flowed smoothly like a peaceful river. Once again, thanks for appreciating my art.

Hari Om!

Chitrangada ji,

It’s very sweet of you to say so. To tell you the truth, I actually make mistakes. I believe it’s quite common in humans. “To err is human, to forgive Divine…” as the adage goes. Now I let go. My Pita ji (Grandfather) used to say, “Surabhi, forget two things in life: The good you do for others, and the bad done by others to you.” Now I realize the worth of his advice. It’s all good. We rise and grow, just like the Sun unfolds her shimmering arms in the early morning, spreading her grace... her value.

Glad to know that it’s your favourite ghazal. I have some good old memories attached to this ghazal. So whenever I listen to it, I cry… of course the tears of joy. Not because I am weak, but because it’s too special that I loose myself in the river of joy. Thank you for your gracious visit. I embrace you here with Love. Take care.

Venkatachari ji,

Pranaam. I thank you for visiting. I am glad that you like it. Love and Peace.

Indeed, I smiled when I read this, for this reminds me of the plentitude of beauty each time I step into my own world. My mind and heart are released among the natural world, to explore all that is there. Each time my spirit returns, I bring some of the world's inhabitants closer to my soul...
