Theme: Life


So busy doing nothing
that the ajaap mantra
remains unheard largely
by “I” the mundane.

This vital force
that keeps one alive
carries the potential
to reveal the knowledge
of the Oneness disguised
in the temple divine

Hear the song
that emanates with
the universal breath
to comprehend and celebrate
the essence of Life 

ajaap = Unsaid

Comment Breaths are numbered and fleeting away! Very beautifully we are cautioned by the poet, to utilise them for goals higher and not transitory.

Comment It begins with 'I' then ripples out to an infinite 'What' and 'Why', gushes back 'In' to the 'I' completing the cyclic essence of life.

Comment Very succinctly and beautifully put. The pursuit of mundane makes us forget the essential,
