-         Manas Bakshi (India)


After a long spell

Of perceptible silence

The stillness inside

Becomes a momentum--



It's time 

For the soul to respond, 

Soul-- the eternal force does

With no articulation..... 

The five senses're spurred on, 

A thread of light is perceptible then--



Lo! the insatiable individual self

Falters to follow! 

Split into pieces

The One never remains one, 

Spreads into cosmic rays

Evincing One is only the Infinite

Forever to command.
