The Glass Bead (The Saga Of My Sati-6)

For a moment or two

It was you


Looking at me with the fluid eyes,

Hooking with me down those fire-lips,

Cracking at a rhythm of strange air,

Missing only the soil of my soul fair,

You entered into

The space I resumed,

The Time I perceived,

The silence of words and

The noise of silence in me.



I dared not stop

Nor look back,

Lest I should miss

A single beat of your heart,

And auspicious presence

You forced inside.



All the elements there

Blazed bright, Shone

With their unique individual smiles-

On their own lips, own eyes,

Everything that they possessed,

Was transforming into a bead-

A bead of glass, as seen

Through the crystal eyes of

Eternal Time and Cosmic Space! !

You entered into The space I resumed, The Time I perceived, The silence of words and The noise of silence in me. I dared not stop Nor look back, Lest I should miss A single beat of your heart, And auspicious presence You forced inside. Lovely and praiseworthy.

This poem turns me back to the year 1995, when I heard a talk from you on the Glass Bead GE by a German Author, Hermann Hesse. I love it. Thanks for the sharing of the poem. Full marks. Keep it up. Seema.
