-         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.
