42. Silence

God's Silence-Light
Created me.
My silence-light
Annoys the world,
Confuses the world,
Puzzles the world.

God's Silence-Height
Immortalises me.
My silence-height
Is the conscious imperfection,
Constant imperfection,
Of my non-acceptance of God's
All-encompassing,
All-embracing
Reality on earth,
Reality in Heaven.
Sri Chinmoy, Beauty-drops, Agni Press, 1975
