The Story of My Doleful Heart

The story of my doleful heart
Nobody wants to hear.
The story of my dying life:
Even God does not care.

My Tears Are Serving God

My tears are serving God,
My smiles are serving me,
My heart is serving man —
This is my life history.

Into the World I Came

Into the world I came
No, not for earthly fame,
No, not for Heavenly gain,
But to be the love-fountain.

I Invoke the Flaming Dawn

I invoke the flaming dawn.
Someday, someday,
This life of clay,
This vital display
Surely shall die;
I shall own bliss-sky.

Beloved Supreme

Beloved Supreme, wrap me
In Your sweet and strong
And transform once and for all
My earth-bound face.

Lock Me, O Lord

Lock me, O Lord,
And then throw away the key,
To please Thy Heart’s Will.
Yet I shall love Thee,
Only Thee,
For mine is the life
Only to please Thee.

Father, You Love Not Only Me

Father, You love not only me
But my ignorance, too.
Who can and who will go so far?
It is You,
Only You,
Who can not only go so far
But infinitely farther.

Father, You Want Me to Equal You

Father, You want me to equal You.
I want only
To be at Your Compassion-Feet,
To love You,
To please You fully
And become Your future hope.

I Was Fired in Heaven

I was fired in Heaven
For not giving a proper message.
I was hired on earth
Only to be scolded
And cancelled, my return passage.

They Strive for Right

They strive for right.
I strive for light.
They strive for God-Force.
I strive for God-Grace.
They strive for God-ecstasy.
I strive for Godward journey.

This Is the Hardest Miracle

This is the hardest miracle
That I have ever seen:
Man talks of God
Without knowing Him,
Man meditates on God
Without seeing Him,
Man prays to God
Without loving Him.

I Aspire to Illumine My Desire-Night

I aspire to illumine my desire-night.
I aspire to remember my liberation-height.
I aspire to claim my long-lost

Those Who Begin Today

Those who begin today
Will end tomorrow.
What will they begin with?
They will begin either
With their curiosity-day
Or with their aspiration-sun.

Can You Tell Me, Friends?

Can you tell me, friends,
Who has escaped from desire-night?
Nobody, nobody.
Can you tell me, friends,
Who wants to live in aspiration-height?
Somebody, somebody.
Can you tell me, friends,
Who wants to live in realisation-light?
Everybody, everybody.

Your Love Has Crowned My Day

Your Love has crowned my day.
I shall fulfil Your gnostic Play.

Time Is Fleeting

Time is fleeting.
My promise-flame is flickering.
Yet I hope my life shall succeed
And my heart shall proceed.

Let Us Taste

Let us taste
The purity of dawn.
The beauty of eve,
Let us taste.
No hurry, no haste.
We shall reach our destination-sun
And thus end our lives’
Eyeless cosmic fun.

True, Art Is Long

True, art is long, life is short.
But God-Grace can reverse the game
With a streak of Heavenly flame.

Once More Let Me Sail

Once more let me sail my life-boat, let me sail.
This time I can never fail and I shall never fail.
Success will definitely be mine.
Through progress-light I shall shine.

Strive Hard, Seek Quick

Strive hard, seek quick,
To find the body of Truth.
Yield not to lethargy blind.
Cleave not to weakness-night.

O Lord of Golden Day

O Lord of golden day,
To You I pray, to You I pray,
To show me the face of summit-height
And Divinity’s translucent Light.

Man's Ingratitude

Man’s ingratitude is man’s worst
Man’s gratitude-light is man’s
Life-fulfilling and life-nourishing
Highest height.

O Lord of Love, O Lord of Life

O Lord of Love, O Lord of Life,
Descend and guide my sight.
I shall grow flowers of peace
For Thy tired Body’s supreme release.

Awake, O My Soul

Awake, O my soul, awake.
Look at me, my angel-infancy,
In which I embody my ecstasy-sea.

A Shattered Boat

A shattered boat, my life is.
Long lost am I,
My helpless oars.
Trembling within and without,
I face all alone Eternity’s Infinity-Shore.

With His Eagle-Eyes

With his eagle-eyes,
He sees beauty’s sunrise.
With his eagle-eyes,
He sees duty’s sea-roar.

I Love the Words of Light

I love the words of light.
I love the messages of delight.
I love the flight of winging thought.
In them, I long always to be caught.

Just Stand and Wait

Just stand and wait.
I shall open for you
My heart’s golden gate.
Just stand and wait.

When Your Face Shines and Smiles

When your face shines and smiles,
I lose in no time all my dingy wiles.

To the Zenith-Height

To the zenith-height,
I shall offer my gratitude-flight.
To the deepest depth,
I shall offer my gratitude-length.

I Am Ready, O Ambition-Bird

I am ready, O ambition-bird.
Take me to the world beyond,
Serene and pure,
Where Infinity’s Smile
Will reign supreme, sure.

Flowers Fade Away

Flowers fade away.
Life fades away.
Something never fades:
My heart’s gratitude-flames
Which always take shelter
Under life’s protection-shade.

The Small Hours

The small hours embody
The perfect time for anything,
For everything:
For God-Arrival,
For man-arrival,
For animal-exit.

I Was Born on a Spotless Morn

I was born
On a spotless morn
And soon became a close friend
Of perpetual day,
Upon the heart
Of earth’s bondage-clay.

Rest, My Heart

Rest, my heart, rest.
In you I have found
My life’s quest
And my soul’s nest.
Rest, my heart, rest.

If You Have No God-Zeal

If you have no God-zeal,
Then away you must remain
From God’s cosmic meal.

Slowly I Sow the Seed

Slowly I sow
The seed of beauty’s flame.
Soulfully I row
The boat of God’s Compassion-Game.

O, Take My Heart

O take my heart, take,
To God’s sacred door.
O, make my life a sincere cry
And then take me
To God’s Golden Shore.

I Love the Heart of All

I love the heart of all.
I shall never brook a fall.

Because I Rowed My Boat

Because I rowed my boat
Day in, day out,
I learned the wisdom of my inner core
Plus God-Divinity’s God-Lore.

Roar, Roar, My Lion-Heart

Roar, roar, my lion-heart.
The cosmic door is wide open.
Roar, roar, my lion-heart.
My eagle bird shall soar and soar
Ever more.
Life is but a prosperity-store.

Just Because You Are a Sage

Just because you are a sage,
I am sure you can bring me
Out of my mental cage.
Just because you are a sage,
You can easily empty my mind
Of wild rage.

O Unknown Morrow

O unknown morrow,
From you I shall borrow
The fount of love-light
To scale my topless height.

O Follower of Earth

O follower of earth!
Go, go and sin no more.
O seeker of Heaven!
Speed forth and stand
On the Golden Shore.

To Serve My Lord Supreme Best

To serve my Lord Supreme best
I have become, soulfully,
A silence-nest.

O, Quote Me Not

O, quote me not,
Quote me not, quote.
From you I need no vote.
What I need is your inner cry
To feed my own heart’s
Vast blue sky.

Be Not a Fool!

Be not a fool!
Never indulge in prediction-dance.
Stark failure-lance
Can easily and speedily
Smash your feeble pride-strength.
Remain always in your silence-soul’s
Sun-vision’s unhorizoned length.

A Baby Man

A baby man
Is God in His inevitable bloom.
A baby God
Is man in his ecstasy-flooded room.

My Lord, If You Want to Fire Me

My Lord, if You want to fire me, fire;
I must retire.
I must enjoy some rest
In Your sleep-nourishing Nest.
I shall not be mad,
I shall not feel sad.
Fire me, my Lord, fire.
I needs must retire.
