Songs Of The Mind 9

Below are some selected short poems from my diary “Songs of the Mind”.


The moon was in the house tonight,

Eager to shine bright,

And the mad lunatics looked for it out,

With the lanterns of the world

In the crazy dark lanes right.

Fools, o fools,

how can you find the flame of the truth there in the street,

With your lust driven torches and greed sweet.

Look for it no more, look for it no more there,

Come back home brothers, it’s all now and here.


Soaked unto the fragrance of the living ether,

My words reach the shore of your grace,

Parched by pain,

Shaken by separation,

And moved by your love –

To blossom unto the most sublime prayer.
