A Luring Home in Heavens---a Poem
Countless flickering diamonds sprinkled up above
in a starry night enchanting and calling
with something outlandish like a bizarre love
sending me messages with every star falling.
Sweet mystery overwhelming at times like tonight
million question-marks hanging from each star
and yet, something so familiar at every sight
like a long lost home luring from afar.
And then my eyes drop down, unwilling like with sores,
just to face a graveyard of questions left to die,
unattended, shunned, with all that hate, greed, wars,
giving inspiration for another trembling sigh.
Maybe this is why all beautiful creatures
like goddesses and angels, and gods of every name,
along with each and every ascended teacher
chose to dwell in heavens---avoiding the same.
But then again, this vast, and sure empty space
this inspiration for loving and solemn prayers
maybe looks much better from this well known place
with all crazy gamut of human affairs.
So, even if your heart holds keys to a home above
don't rush to get there, be a little of a clown,
forget about hate, indulge some more in love
and keep me company, for I only qualify for "down".
