Ah! Who can tell?
I know quite well.
Try your mind-cave.

I Had a Dream, I Had a Dream

I had a dream.
God will make me
His Compassion-stream.
I have a dream,
I have a dream.
God needs my smile
To support His team.

His human life is released.
His divine life has increased.
He will, ere long, enjoy God-feast.

I Do Not Sing, I Cannot Sing

I do not sing,
I cannot sing.

I cry and sigh.
God-Pride I bring.

No Haste

No haste, no haste.
Just slowly taste
The beauty of your core,
More, ever more.

To open my heart.

To remove world dirt.
Here is the sea
Of oneness-glee.

My heart shall always care.
My life shall always dare.
I shall give God-oneness rare.

Heart-surrender-ray
To win God-Day,
With God to play,
Transform earth-clay.
Indeed,
This is the way.

I Love the Beauty of Sleeping Flowers

I love the beauty
Of sleeping flowers.
I love the purity
Of dying mortals.

Of seeking souls.

To Be a Friend Divine

To be a friend divine
I must be a supreme friend.
Indeed, this is the way
My stupid life I end.

One Thing I Know

One thing I know:
Heaven is unkind.
One thing I see:
This world is slow.
One thing I sow:
Sincerity.

Earth’s will feeds me, my heart.

My life nothing can bind.

I Love Because I Must

Because I must.
I serve
Because I last.
I pray
Because I need.
I smile
Because I feed.

How Can I Forget You?

How can I forget you?
You are so kind.
Am I so blind?
How can I forget you?
You are so true
In all you do.
How can I forget you?
You are God’s choice.
You are man’s voice.

I Think of God Because He Is So Kind

I think of God
Because
He is so kind.
I think of man
Because
He is so sad.
I think of me
Because
I am so blind.
I think of you
Because
You are so mad.

O Deaf Heaven

O deaf Heaven,
I have two ears.
You can have one.
Gladly I shall share.
O eyeless earth,
I have two eyes.
You can have one.
Sincerely I care.

Two Distance-Friends Meet

Two distance-friends meet:
The finite cry
And
The infinite smile.
Soulfully I love the two.
Equally I greet.

He Sang His Swan Song

“Man is great.
God is good.
Life is hunger.
Earth is food.”

Your Service-Tree

Is blossoming now.
Your surrender-fruits
Have kept your vow.

I Love My Task

I love my task.
Daily I unmask my inner flame,
Daily I invite God’s Compassion-Game.

I Am Not Ready to Feel

I am not ready
To feel the heart of man.
I am not ready
To see the Face of God.
But
I am all ready
To give my soulful ken
To man.
But
I am all ready
To give my crying face
To God.

Great Is He

Great is He who lives
In Heaven-charming beauty.
Good is He who dies for
Earth’s fulfilling liberty.

On My Way Back to Life

On my way back to life,
Life offered me its blossoming soul.
On my way back to death,
Death offered me its resting goal.

Your Need

Your need and love are one;
You see their oneness white.
In them you see and feel
Your satisfaction-light.

Four Important Failures

Four important failures:
Earth has lost its sincerity.
Heaven has lost its beauty.
Man has lost its divinity.
Truth has lost its purity.

I Need a Flame Within

I feed a flame within;
I feed a smile without.
Around I play God-game;
My animal kingdom I tame.

For My Sake

Heart, for my sake
Do not neglect.
Heaven, for my sake
Do not reject.
Man, for my sake
Do not project.
Accept, do accept.

Use Not Your Tyrant-Temper

Use not your tyrant-temper
To devour the world.
Use your oneness-treasure
And become earth’s perfection-soul
And God’s Satisfaction-Goal.

Pure Love's First Gift

Pure love’s first gift:
Beauty’s newness-source.
Pure love’s last gift:

No matter where I go,
I see a oneness-glow,
An endless newness-flow.

Pure as Prayer-Cry

Pure as prayer-cry,
Sure as service-sky,
Rare as surrender-height,
You are empty of night.

Faith Is Its Own Redeemer

Faith is its own redeemer.
Confidence is its own fulfiller.
Joy is its own expounder.
Doubt is its own destroyer.
Love is its own protector.
Oneness is its own saviour.

A Foolish Prayer-Night

A foolish prayer-night:
My Lord, give me.
A wisdom-prayer-light:
My Lord, take me.

Life-Flower Quickly Fades

Life-flower quickly fades.
Friend-bond quickly breaks.
God-love quickly dawns.
Ecstasy all-where pervades.

Father, You Have Given Him Your Pen

Father,
You have given him Your pen.
You have given her Your ball.
Father, what about poor me?
“My son, just wait
At My Heart-Gate.
I shall give you my All.”

Beyond the Reach of Heaven

The human cry.
Beyond the reach of earth:
A smile divine.

Peace.

Oneness-shrine.

The gratitude-song.
I hope to break
The self-announcement-gong.

What Can I Do?

What can I do?
With God I can converse.
What can I do?

What can I do?
I beckon the soul of feeble dole.
What can I do?
I produce God-soul
And
Pave the way to perfection-goal.

One Promise to My Heaven-Height

One promise to my Heaven-height:
My heart shall always fly.
One promise to my earth-failure:
My soul shall always cry.

Lord, When My Song Is Sung

Lord, when my song is sung,
What shall I do?
“My child, do not delay,
Cry for your new dawn-dew.”

Love-stars from above.

You will be the connection-tie
Between humanity’s sigh
And divinity’s sky.

O Sun of My Soul

As a Seeker-Soul

As a seeker-soul
You will always win and gain.
As a lover-soul
You will be the hyphen
Between freedom and chain.

You are so near.
O Lover kind,
Bind my heart, bind.

I am all yours, sure.

My tiny boat I row.
My little body I drag.

Beyond all measure.

My ‘I’-ness I tarnish.

Believe It or Not, I Love

Believe it or not,
I love my duty’s flow.

It spreads far and wide
Beauty’s glow.

In Your Case, What You Need

In your case,
What you need
Is a life of self-control.

What I need
Is a Perfection-Goal.

You will be part and parcel
Of your deceased fame.

Keep your body-soul
Closer to my heart-door.

God’s experience:
Man is God-Eternity’s
Another God.

For a Knowledge-Teacher

For a knowledge teacher he did not care.
He had wisdom-tutor rare.
Knowledge is preparation, uncertain and slow.
Wisdom is realisation and perfection-glow.

Because of his failure-cry.
God is dear to God
Because of His failure-success-
Oneness-experience-sky.

I Build My Hope-Tower

I build my hope-tower
Inside the smile
Of Heaven high.
I bury my frustration-shower
Inside the tears
Of earth’s loud cry.

Why Do I Fail?

Why do I fail?
No, not because
I am important.
No, not because
I am unimportant.
No, not because I am a fool
Who has had no gnostic school.
Oh, but because
It was not God-ordained sail.
Therefore, I fail.

I Longed to Give My Heart and Soul

I longed to give my heart and soul
To the animal world.
My ex-friends were confused.

To the human world.
My human fellows
Were not enthused.
I longed to give my heart and soul
To the worlds divine.
My divine friends
Were quite amused.

Beautiful clime.

Ancient-night,
I salute your soulful cry.
Ancient-light,
I salute your fruitful sky.

Speak, Silence, Speak

Teach me how to seek.
Stop, sound, stop!
You are soulless,
You are fruitless,
You are weaker,
You are poorer
Than a tiny drop.

O Piercing Ray

O piercing ray!
Do pierce this body of clay.
O illuming light!
Do illumine this life of night.

Sleepless with aspiration,
Thoughtless in meditation
You are.
Therefore, not far,
From liberation-strength
And realisation-length.

Blissful solitude,
Peaceful plenitude,
Truthful beatitude:
To you three
My soulful gratitude.

Ecstasy of My Psychic Fire

Ecstasy of my psychic fire

Shall embrace my selfless way.

On earth must last.

And

In Your Silence long.
My life shall fly
With Your Compassion-Song.
