Sitting with the Swami

 
I wanted to sit there longer. On Swami Veda Bharati's left at the head table two Saturdays ago at University of West Indies’ new Daaga Hall in St Augustine,  I heard each breath he took. They were deep, calm, and measured. His hands rested lightly, if not on the table, on each of his thighs. He held his back straight. Swaddled in subtle orange, he blinked infrequently, his eyes lowered and focused. It was, I suppose, a meditative state that, after decades of study, training and contemplation under Swami Rama of the Himalayas, was now his normal condition.

We are two birds of different branches

We are two birds of different branches, but share everything we have. 

She is the queen of night and I am the king of day. 

We fly over and over to the unknown destinations in our kingdom.

 

We begin our journey together into different directions though we have the same destination. 

We live here and there though we share the same hut.

 

It is day for her when it is night in my side though we share the same land. 

She reveals the secret of love when I don’t fall in love with her and rise every moment.

 

My heart in winks and out winks at her will. 

The mystery of my love is in her rise while I fall within me.
