Total Abyss

Premananda's picture



Total Abyss©

Slowly, the water rises up - the whirlpool engulfs me

Deeper and deeper into darkness, I can no longer see

Numbness overtakes, coldness sets in…emptiness



Soul Pieces

Premananda's picture



Soul Pieces

Somehow within the clouds of disillusionment, I lost my way

Searching for the pieces of my soul that went away

Knocking on doors, glancing through windows



Awakening

Premananda's picture



Awakening©

Slowly mounting, tremulous pitches, heighten senses

Hurricane passions, whipping against the gates of the soul

Whispered echoes of hearts beating in rhyme



What Really Matters

Premananda's picture



What Really Matters©

I am not interested in your ancestral tree or how deep your roots are…

But what type of foundation they have laid for who you are now



Love Goddess

Jai K Garg's picture



Let the incense burn smoke aromas,
As cinders in love to caress hues,
Tread as you will in sublime softness,
To choose or charge my innocent Dream.

This no vision of erotic tricks,



poem 1

benk's picture



i wrote this a few months ago while on my travels... it's not exactly a literary masterpiece, but i enjoyed it, so i thought i'd share it...

I am fire
and I am water
I am sky
and I am earth,



Him

Jai K Garg's picture



Infinite thy song sings;
To praise Him, and only Him:
The Mighty is every where,
We live within Him in eternity:

Are we here, there, every where,
Does body soul and mind mean anything?



Discovering Faith

Jai K Garg's picture



The Ganga flows
In gurgling ripples of laughter.
Overflowing edges
With its snow melted contents.
Quenching the foliage
With it’s sacred holiness,
And the stillness in the air
