First He Looked Confused

Poem By Sant Tukaram

I could not lie anymore so I started to call my dog 'God.'
First he looked
confused,

then he started smiling, then he even
danced.

I kept at it: now he doesn't even
bite.

I am wondering if this
might work on
people?

I was sleeping when Namdeo and Vitthal Stepped into my dream.
'Your job is to make poems. Stop wasting time,' Namdeo said.
Vitthal gave me the measure and gently aroused me from a dream inside a dream.
Namdeo vowed to write one billion poems.

More soothing than the rays of moon
Thy love an ever flowing tide,

Let righteous deed secure you all good weal

Can Water Drink Itself?

Can water drink itself?
Can a tree taste its own fruit?
The worshiper of God must
remain distinct from Him.

All Men To Me Are God-Like Gods!

All men to me are god-like Gods!
My eyes no longer see
vice or fault.
