Books.

Over a hundred books are upon my shelves,
I don't read them , Do they read themselves?
Are they filled with knowledgeable things,
Or like the birds, Do they have wings?
One day very soon, I'll have a look to see,
If I look long enough perhaps I'll find one for me.
Or shall I leave them for others to read,
I dare not open one it will probably bleed.
A big black book with letters of copperplate,
Invites me to read it before it is too late.
Small and thin a book of verse,
Looks so fragile shall I call a nurse.
Adventure I am sure from cover to cover,
With Heroine fighting to save her lover.
A very thick tomb a history book,
Will I become wiser if I take a look.
One very large book it is an Atlas I know,
Dominates the others tries to steal the show.
A Cowboy story from the wild West,
If I read it will I catch the pest.
Or science fiction lost in outer space,
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=17040
With me as Hero to save the Human race.
Yes I have a hundred books, that is for sure,
In the Public Library there are thousands more.
All of my books I will order into students' classes.
I don't think I will read them for I have lost my glasses.


.................................................. ...........................................

Speed of Light.

While travelling at the speed of light,
Passengers and crew see a most beautiful sight.
Suns, Moons and comets rushing by,
Causing many an astronaut to sigh.
My wish is to be among the elite
Taking part in this great Feat.
Starting off as Cabin Boy,
Rising to Captain much to my joy.
Photon engines surging with power,
Pushing on the ship hour by hour.
What are we doing here in space,
Looking for Aliens or some strange race.
Mankind's old dream come true at last.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=17040
As suns and moons go rushing past.
Come let us all join in the quest.
The first to greet that Alien Guest.

Friendship.

It was just a sheet of paper out of an exercise book,
Until I started writing to see how it would look.
My pen wrote quickly as if with ghostly hand,
The poem that appeared was not so very grand.
It told not of love or of flowers so sweet,
Just about two people that by chance did happen to meet.
They spoke about their lives and the work that they did do,
It sounded rather commonplace like most chats, lively but true.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=17040
Families with children and the costs of living,
How they each celebrated at the last thanksgiving.
What presents they had bought for the wife and kids,
At the local auction where both had made their bids.
Then on to sport each had a favourite team,
They were kindred spirits each with their own dream.
A friendship developed between the unlikely pair,
They had so much in common yes each had a lot to share.
After making arrangements for their families to meet,
I very often see them as they walk down the street.
It was a true friendship I could see by the smiles,
You know for such a friendship, I would walk a hundred miles.


Cosmic Force.
Rays of cosmic force so bright,
Bathe me in your pure blue light.
Rid me of all earthly ties and bonds,
That hold me till my soul absconds.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=17040
Into that promised realm above,
Be again with those that shared my love.
Let me soar in that knowledge pure,
That here on earth seems so obscure.
Refresh my hopes in those ethereal surrounds,
Let me bask in a love that knows no bounds.
Guidance for my future life on earth,
Cosmic beams be at my next new birth.
Radiance shine on that tender soul,
Gently pushing to an earthly goal.
That I may help all of mankind
To untie those knots that ever bind.
Freedom from all want and care,
No more carnage for humans to share.
That rays of cosmic force so bright,
Bathe all of mankind in that pure blue light.

The Universal Incarnation
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=17040
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=17040


~
There is a Wisdom like a brooding Sun,
A Bliss in the heart's crypt grown fiery white,
The heart of a world in which all hearts are one,
A Silence on the mountains of delight.

A Calm that cradles Fate upon its knees;
A wide Compassion leans to embrace earth's pain;
A Witness dwells within our secrecies,
The incarnate Godhead in the body of man.

Our mind is a glimmering curtain of that Ray,
Our strength a parody of the Immortal's power,
Our joy a dreamer on the Eternal's way
Hunting the fugitive beauty of an hour.

Only on the heart's veiled door the word of flame
Is written, the secret and tremendous Name.

13-9-1939
Sri Aurobindo

Re: Poetry Corner

This poetry is all about my girlfriend...

However keep in mind when I wrote this, i was not a Gursikh.



The Second Guru
By: *me* (note: edited for online use, all it;s right still belong to me, but i do not wish to disclose my name)



Chapter One

Homage to the Guru,
Tamer of beings.
Set us on the right
path
and lead us
to
moksha
beyond
dualisms.

- 1 -

The first meeting
was like a spark
I stomped it
out
with
My own dark mind.
Love was lost.

- 2 -
Foolish decisions
made
That only hurt you
without change
the natural process
I would
not of
loved
you like
I do now.

- 3 -
With trust
comes total surrender
I give
myself
to you.
I will be gentle,
to you.
Please, treat me well.

- 4 -
There is no other
Love or obsession
in my life
then you.
I entrust myself to you.

- 5 -
When opposites meet
The pure always
Wash away the stains of
mind
My love, make me pure,
like you.


- 6 -
Each day passes
Your purity, love,
Compassion, and
Wisdom rub off on
me.
When two cloths
Look identical
One was pure
One was stained
You, my love
Took away my stains.
We are one, now,
Forever.


- 7 -
I have become
just like you.
We are one cloth.
Just two different sides.
Different expressions
of one united soul.


- 8 -
Like the Heruka's
Three faces
We are
2 beings
That appear
seperate
In mind
and
soul
we
are
O N E.

- 9 -
Having met
The love of my
life
Is the blessings of
All the Buddhas.
Be my Mandarava.
I
will
never
leave
you.

- 10 -
Even if seperate
in body
I still miss you.
I begin to
journey
inside.
There, I see, you
never left.

- 11 -
You are
the
only thing
present

- 12 -
Everything else
without
your love
is
useless
to me.
You are my second guru.
For everything to be
learned
is learned in
l o v e.

- 13 -
Seeing you is like
Seeing an embodiemnt
of all that
is wished for.
All I need is you.

- 14 -
Even if you were
to hate me
Any attention from you
is a rain of
Heavenly flowers,
Delightful to anyone.

- 15 -
Will you
be there
for
Love me
me
think of me,
Even that
is a cause
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=17040
for bliss
Like Indra's bow.

- 16 -
My love for
you
will always
be an all engulfing
flame.
burning away all
my imperfections.
Until only you, and
The first Guru
remain.

- 17 -
Every day
I pick up
The pen that
sheds away
all hate.
I write on
The paper of pure love.
So all can see
The radiating
warmth of
our
true love.

- 18 -
It is always
the small
things that
capture
a heart
in love
Second Guru,
I pray,
Shower me,
with your un-ending
love and
concern.

- 19 -
Before entering the
temple
I wash my hands,
And there I see
you.
I wash my face,
reminding
myself
We are of one face
inside.
I wash my feet,
and my sins
are cleansed
by your love.

- 20 -
With time
basking
in our love
I lose
myself
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=17040
and see our
one
face
You
never
left
me.

Let us all chant the Naam
Let us hit the strings of the unstruck Shabad

Let us sing songs of praises
and that of lament
All while remembering Akal.

Any bliss or pain
We have is his Hukam
What more is there
for us to do?

Keep Anand,
Keep pain,
Let go of Anand,
Let go of Pain
All is his Hukam.

Love between two
Mortal or immortal
Is the true Anand.
