Falling through rose petals, soaring like a bird
The velvet lining is all that is heard
Sight pierces through and sees only You
The You of the ocean and You of the sky
Nowhere pure vision finds a divide.
Intoxicated by fragrance
Flying higher and higher
I evaporate out of the clutch of maya
Falling into the ocean
To the depths of the blue
Even in the waves
There is no one other than You.
Into the wind my wings are pulled
Spinning and whirling into every little fold
Into the stillness where even breath stops
I find absolutely nowhere where you are not.
The light of the sun relentlessly shines
Having no expectation of its glory divine
Subtly permeating, it reaches the core
Its fire penetrates until I can take it no more.
Into the aakash I spin out of control
Mind is released from the grip of its mold
It disintegrates back from where it originally came
Finding by grace it is actually lame.
Piercing my heart with Krishna’s own bow
Into the chariot as Arjun I go
Into the sky with the grace of your flight
You answer my each and every plight.
Your darshan alone exists for me now
Reaching me beyond any concept of how
But your eyes convey from where it originally came
You are the reason that I remain.
Your sameness of being can never not be
You have convinced me of this and made me ever so free
Yet I am your servant for all eternity
Touching your feet for being the one who liberated me.
The grace of knowing the nature of change
I have come to embrace as a gift that needs no exchange
The nectarian choice you yourself are
Has drenched my being beyond even afar.
I dive into the depths of your ocean of love
A bird in flight, a peace-loving dove
Into your ocean I wish to drown
To allow the ultimate most godly meltdown.
I have no preference at all but to be lost in you
This journey for me you always knew
Yet in the loss I will be found
In the very ocean that I have drowned.
