I shall blend in every Heart on the day I blend in You.” -Sri Chinmoy

Blending With the Light of Wisdom


A Regular Sonnet

Pray I be truly ready when we meet,

My scars were numerous; my thorns ran deep.

Life’s struggle-bows once pierced my tender feet,

For eons did I seek You in my sleep.

My Heart is thrilled, each strand a garland bright,

Pruned from the bitter wine of life’s demise.

My soul’s awake to Your perpetual Light,

For You alone, no more my earthly ties.

The moon has kissed me with its golden glow,

Love’s sacred flame burns deep within my frame.

The stars above, the beauty here below,

Encircles me, with Thy supernal name.

Pray I be truly ready when we meet,

My Spirit’s core, Your golden-septred Feet.

The Fullness of an Ecstatic Emptiness in Silence. Free Verse

Petunias and dahlias coming together,

Serenade with wafts that’s not of rivalry.

Rather they blend as one bouquet,

To enhance the beauty of their intimacy.

Although the role of the moon and stars

Seem different, they both cradle an all-illumining

Synergy in the heavens;

Awakening a sweetness, in the Heart of Man.

One virgin dawn, a starling spoke sweet verses

To the nightingale and said: “O singer of songs, come!

Let us use our psalms and beatitudes, to elevate

The Spirit of those who seek Love.”

The nightingale responded with sublime eloquence,

Both filling the air with their symphonies.

Each Heart yearns to blend, like the song-bearers;

Spreading its fragrance, like a valley of lavenders.

Where is the form of which I was once proud?

Lantern says: There is only the fullness of Emptiness,

In this ecstatic Light of the Unknowable.

Wisdom From The Master

"How sweet is the breath of the flower.

How illumining is the sacrifice of the fragrance." -Sri Chinmoy
