A Ripple And A Sunbeam

A ripple and a sunbeam
Went chasing each other's tail

Skinny dipping
On the waters of the lake

Whizzing by on a skateboard
All over the place

Is a ram-rod majestic sycamore



Telling A Mirage How To Be

MAI's picture



It all happens spontaneously

There's simply no making a right or wrong out of it



On The Edge Of A Feather

MAI's picture



Aaaahhhh...this intuited unicity

Knowing we are not separate from each other
Nor separate from love

Not one
Not two
Nor none

Where there is no me
Nor other
Nor love



Pierced By A Feather

The ocean sings on the sands

Dancing a two step
With a necklace of yesterday's leaves

Sighing dreams into a wreath

The vice-like grip



Of Goldfish And Pigeons And Guppies

Words

At my old home I had a little fish pond going in the terrace garden

With guppies and goldfish
And a couple of large grey sucker fish
That would lay motionless



Nectar Cannot Taste Itself

And when the other left
Leaving half an empty space
One half of a kiss remained

It left me bereft
Nectar cannot know the taste of itself

And you longed to kiss yourself



And The Fullness Comes Marching In

Eternity's ring

It never went anywhere

It was always where it had been
Awaiting your kiss

Your own lips
Thirsting

An ocean dying...parched
Looking for the wetness of water



A Love Like This

MAI's picture



It poured and pored and poured forth
It was uncontainable
Inundating me

There was no stopping this runaway train
It had a life of its own
Doing itself

I had no clue

A love like this



And Your Own Song Sings Back To You

Many teachers and gurus use words like "god" or "self"



The Fragrance Of Spring

MAI's picture



Perhaps that's why I shut the fuck up
For a long number of years

I never had the words
And I just intrinsically knew it was premature

And withdrew into Ramana's proverbial cave
