35. THE FLAME OF ASPIRATION

The wings of my longings are undone,
All my desires are hushed.
The flame of aspiration shines —-
Smiles now my heart abashed
To feel the Formless in Form divine,
To see nought save the One
That, neither male nor female, yet
Broods ever our Parent-sun.
Sri Chinmoy, Flame Waves, Sri Aurobindo Ashram, 1955
