You Are Love- 1

You are love
That’s why
You brought me
To the existence
Just to enjoy
Loving me
And I so loved
The existence
Because it’s there
Where I can find you
Where we get together
Dissolving into
One another
As one and only being.

You Are Love– 2

You are love
And so often
In my distress,
You surprise me
With a tender breeze
That softly soothes
My complaining skin.
Oh, such a bliss!
And I wish to ask you:
Was it your whisper
Or your kiss?

When I Leave This World Shall I Look Back? - 6

When I leave this world
Shall I look back
To see my body?
It wasn’t perfect
Nor beautiful …
Neither huge nor strong
Nor sacred …
Nor even pure.
Yet, oh!!
How desperately You wished
Your deep warm heartfelt
Dwelling ... in there ...
Would endure!

When I Leave This World Shall I Look Back? - 17
A Potter and His Masterpiece

When I leave this world
Shall I look back,
Trying to remember
A story I’ve lived by?
It’s about a potter heavenly
Who came down
To reconstruct his
Self-broken masterpiece
To live eternally.

It did cost him
A river of blood
That flew so faraway
To pour his immortality
Into the dusky bottomless
Ocean of all mortals’ death.

What a divine romance
Many would reject!!
Yet, we won’t
After we dive deep
Into Your LOVE
That creates a lived-by
Superior reality
Out of a rejected myth.

India’s Wheel Of Existence & Temple Of Athena

I was going to write a poem. But my words got bored. They revolted. They moved. They jumped up and down. They ran away from all circles of meanings, getting unbound … unfolded. Their letters got loose, expanding … stretching on the white horizons of my painting sheet to become long lines, entangled … interwoven by the heat of emotions until they form together shapes, figures and bodies … These are my creatures ...

O my sweet creatures!
You’ve come into being
By my lusting brush
As it’s been caressing
The very skin of
A passionately stretching
Painting board

I can see you
Trying to touch
Those legendary heroes
Carved on
The Temple of Athena’s
Frieze metopes
There, there
In my beloved
Immortal Greece

I can see you
Trying to move
My sacred Eternal India’s
Wheel of Existence
Round and round
Bringing to being
Yourselves and others
That are yet to exist.
