The Headdress manifesto

A surreal headdress I am when placed on a head
A rare mountain herb growing over the top of rocks
A spaceship variant of the Cheshire Cat seen in space only
I am between a coral and seaweed
The unseen skyflower hidden in the tummy of a big fat cloud that wants to gift a rainbow after a storm and hullabaloo
The reflection of a Persian lilac in my mother’s admiring eyes
That inspired I am!
A delicious fruit from a tale that feeds a caterpillar
A logo of a paper tissue box ūüėÄ
I am
All other things that others say I also am and can be
because
A shapeshifter I am
A spaceshifter I am
A mindshifter I am
Always a thing I can be
because a non- drifter I am
born in fluid spaces
Fluid
FIluid
I am
And
All of these
I am I know I am
and whatever I am
I fully am
because
Unchained Unchanged
I am

and when all of these
labels and things
leave me
I still am
as I am
because
I am

Healing 

Today my body is sick
very sick
but I won’t use any medication
This I know is a good method of observation to test how sincere I am
or is it just a mind born fantasy
My love
My love for you

Point of silence which I am perpetually in
is bliss
from where ambrosia flows as if fluid light and heals and rejuvenates all
because of your grace and my love

This body shall be healed again through your light and mine

Today my body is sick
very sick
and this I got as a blessing through the words of a sick man yesterday

I asked him how his sickness manifested
The symptoms
and dressed up with it
as he described
through his blue eyes and shirt
10 minutes later I started shaking
with pain and fewer … as he described
Next day he was well again

Today my body is sick
very sick
but I won’t use any medication
I will heal it
Centralized
Have I been true to you my love?

It is for cleansing
and purification
of mind
of body

It is a blessing I know
of this place
that comes about and shines
for and by your love only

and my contemplation
is healing with me
All there is around me

All

Glassmoon

To your call I wake up
Walk in the dark
Lookup
Through what should be a window or glass
I knew it was

There is a memory supporting the theory
of the past or of yesterdays
but not for the part :
‚ÄúI saw you through‚ÄĚ

this you
hiding behind
what could be a cloud

unseen like the glass

shining jewel
Illuminating round
glaring light
with cheeks

smiling
Persisting about the hereness
Becoming my eyes
and my heart
expanding majestic

The glitter before the manifestation of an object
You are I that looks through and sees
You are I which I understand deeply
Through a moment
observing duality

Observing yeah
duality yeah
Who?
Who? me?

In my body
Tired but shocked from seeing such …
Reality

Ready to embrace you again in my arms
and forgive
for the first and the last time

sanctuary

I looked through the fumes of the mirror
deep into your eyes
and only then I knew to differentiate
these smokey lines of my own face
from yours
seeing the shine of my pupils
engraved in an old picture
perpetuating in yours
like an orb of grace
expanding in pastel light
oozing away
freckles of desire
unmanifest
as if traces of contractions
of a galaxy conceived
deliquesces into its unborn unity

Keep it like a Jewel

likeajewelhesaid

like a jewel – ink and pencil on paper – 21×29,7 cm

Like jewels he said
Unknowing
I kept these last two
like jewels

The unchanging gift
of the grandeur tree

Aging

through the
unchanging change
of the seasons…

in the garden of tales

with Roses
A cherry tree
An owl
A weasel
A pomegranate tree
A well
A frog
An apple and a plum tree
A snake and an urchin
And the peculiar birds in a row:
A laughing bird
A singing bird
A napping bird
A rushing bird and
A guarding bird
The last one also
gives them many changing tasks
using verbs
and they become many
also disappear sometimes
as if there hasn’t been any

And of course
The bees!
Spiders too
strange insects too

Sometimes
A cat passes
not always!
changing its shape and color
each time it passes
I know
it is the cat

Sometimes people visit
Not always

changing the place
of the fireplace
by the season
from outsides
to insides and then again
from insides to outsides

And an an orphan dog
abandoned there
by one of such people
that he trusted
and if there would be a chance
He would trust again

He is always there nowadays
Alone mostly
sheltering
in my shadow

and Only he knows
where I have been hiding

In the shadows of the shadows

which also stays

Even though
Leaves change
Branches change
Creatures change

And
will stay
As long as he is there
Looking for love

cause My shadow
made of
a heart
of dreaming him like a jewel 
from beyond a far far Land –
Shadowless

Now

Our secret is your secret
Our secret is my secret
your secret and my secret is
Our secret

 

notes: I heard the story of the dog from my sister. It saddened me . Hoping the light of this poem will bring love and warmth to this lonely dog far far away and it will and it does.

Such is our lives hiding at times in a shadow of words coming from limited knowledge that can bind us until we liberate by seeing  the truth within , the light within, the only light and convert that source of bondage to a source of liberation.

Phew! Game over

well it seems they all know that I know by now
-laugh-
as both
the girl and the boy disappeared
-clearing the throat-
but no hard feelings…
We all had fun in the end
-sigh-

Such futile games
Such silly games
We wish to play
with ourselves
at times
until
We can pick up the essence

***

Submerged into the peace
of this endlessly lingering
mantra
remaking me

in my ears

reshaping dehinaŠł•
I delve into that universe
or I

Beyond and above
My eyes shine
same as the sunrise
Beyond skies
and clouds

but

My life story
in this body and place
as if it’s hers ..still
and she
is a residual trace

Oh dear one
one and the only one

If you have asked
the password
I’d have given you
at once
willingly
Instead of
it
manifesting
as your karma

Oh dear one
my
one and the only one

I shall whisper you
in the ear
like a mantra
until you wake up
in another dream
in which
I am not.

Tale of a reflection on a mount lake

On a mountain top
he gifted her a glittery water
and he said:

“Drink this without drinking”
and so she did
and became the water

May that be a mount lake…

As he passed as a wonderer boy
He looked down to taste

just before he touched
he saw… the untouched

Reflection
like a mirror
endlessly shining through

and he spoke
without using his voice
“Oh
the pure water…”

he saw it like a beloved

“Wish! Wish! for something
cause in your purity this whole universe is gifting”

and his pure heart got a response

“Oh dear one
what else can I wish more than this love
You are here now
Light shines on me blissfully
We are one
Full
with all of I
is not other than you
Light of love
We are here now

Dance of unity
Always one
we are here now
It’s our universe
Oh dear one
What else can I wish
more than this love”

and he stayed
between ripples
as the ever shining universe
Unmoved

Mudra of a smile … :)

Who is this beauty!
Who is this lover!
experiencing
this body with me
today!

through your eye
I can travel
landscapes
of
a
long
missed
embrace

like rays

dilating

towards an
amaranthine Crest

along which She dances

in the arms
of
his ecstasy
that
whirls
and whirls

dissolving double
rainbows
into
the
light

of becoming
One

Body

Oh    for love only

and   for love only

such        an
effortless
stance
unmovedly
elongates

along three worlds

which I peacefully watch
(now)

with a mudra

mudra
of
a smile

.
.
.
….
but AA YEA!)

That’s
my Cheshire cat smile ūüôā

balancing
universes
in me
with your aura  


pervading my skin

for
such smile
can only be kindled
by your distant
touch of love

color of the heart
to lift me
to a knowledge
unspeakable
unpronounceable
