The sky is light; the grass is green,

I long for You as never been,

A child, a God-man to adore,

Do burn my ignorance to the core.

When nights are dark and rain doth fall,

With thoughts of You I bear them all.

In joy and sorrow, love and pain,

Through suffering I can't refrain,

From love's sweet moment full of bliss,

Your adorable feet I kiss.

'cross tribulations, stormy seas,

I am before Thee on my knees.

In buses cars and aeroplanes,

At nights in sleep, on days in trains.

While working, playing, You I meet,

Spend countless moments at Thy feet.

Will You not always keep me so?

Is my devotional so unreal?

No remedy I wish to know,

All pangs that separate are hell.

I see You walking, smiling; free.

I feel Your love, Your agony.

The celestial realms I visit too,

And feel compassion flow from You.

Without You life is one big pain,

Like burning from a teacher's cane.


Ode To A New Birth

The words you spoke were sweet,

And melodious to my ears.

Your voice, soft, yet earnest,

Conveyed a realm of truth that struck,

With deep regained awakening.

The heart stirred ... filling me

With deeper yearning,

For things I onced possessed,

My deepest gratitude.

May I be faithful to thy purest Self.

Perchance I've won the victory.

But should I lapse again,

Fill me with madness for the Highest Source;

Yearning so sublime,

To take me to the pinnacle of divine romance

And transcendental bliss.

Adieu! my friend. We'll meet again

In sweet communion.

Where wise ones say that words are not,

And all is silence.

A New Birth of Freedom

New birth

Some ways of celebrating new birth?

      Agreed. One secret is prayer and an awareness of the descent of Grace to enhance inner strength. Also acceptance, while remembering that the Supreme is always in charge and knows what is best for us. Finally, gratitude, the kind of sweet feeling we get on awakening and which we acknowledge to come from God.

      Thank you, Lady E. I have followed you, too, and will continue. Let us pray for one another.

      Beautiful and Inspiring to read. It's nice to be conscious through out the day about our spirituality, but not always possible as we are so busy busy.... Thanks. Great share.

      Yes you are right about your poetic words being so sublime - and it tells so much about the gentleman holding the pen - thank you for this intimate exercise reflecting your literary art and how you can make words look and sound so beautiful and also provocative.
