Ways Of India

Poem By Ayni Poet

On the banks of Ganges river,
In Benares, the city of the great sage Kabir,
Away from the galactic swirling,
Life unites with deep space waves.

Many come here from far,
Looking for hope, candles and shrines,
To drink the cup of the supreme love,
To wash the memories engraved in their flesh.

There's a lissome woman sitting on the crowded ghat,
Her summer blonde hair falls onto the ground,
Enveloping her silk, majestic sari as a wide mantel of pure light,
Eclipsing the darkness around.

Durga's temple is where she contemplates,
Yet knows that what is searched for has no house,
It's in the stream of the river, in the hundreds of birds that learn to fly,
In the sadhus, ascetics and in each simple men,
An inner teacher, guru, shows her unmistakably,
The natural way.

I Am Here

Blow your breath into the tight veins of my heart
Paint me with your eyes,
Draw me with your hands,
Kiss me with your warm skin,

Portrait Of A Lover

I paint you in vibes,
In light, in symbols and in dark,
In fullness and in emptiness,
Without space or time,

Shades Of The Transparent

Mystical dust thrown in the air,
The show of life presents its plots
Hell and ecstasy braided like hair,
Endless games creation plays!

The Goddess Of Waves

On the wings of frozen metal,
The echoes of a spider's step rush,
And icy shells are murmuring a song
Underneath foamy shores sinking in epic solitude.

Call Of The Mystical One

In the monk's cave I hear those pleadings,
Prayers scattered in a temple of solitude
The path of renunciation sketched in metallic shades,
Resonating in the singing bowls,

Satyam Shivam Sundram (Truth-Godliness-Beauty)

Satyam,
Original Spirit
Water and thirst together,
Unapproachable by thought's claws,
