20. HIS FEET OF THE SPIRIT-BLAZE

Two Feet of Thunder
To plumb the abysmal deep,
To build the Day
Over the python sleep
Of eyeless earth.
The Feet of the Spirit-Blaze
Now pierce the masks
Of fate and time-born ways.
In silence they move.
The aspiring souls of clay
Invoke their lights
And ascend to see Heaven's Play,
To slaughter Death,
And human body's strife.
Two Feet, wherein
Are roots of immortal Life.
Sri Chinmoy, Flame Waves, Sri Aurobindo Ashram, 1955
