Don't Go Far Off...

Annnd now, WHAT a poem by the great Pablo Neruda...!

Piercing in its desolation...and the direct & honest way it implores the LOVED one NOT to Leave one ALONE n Go....!!


Don't Go Far off. . . 

Don't go far off, not even for a day, because --
because -- I don't know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station
when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.

Don't leave me, even for an hour, because
then the little drops of anguish will all run together,
the smoke that roams looking for a home will drift
into me,
choking my lost heart. 

Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach;
may your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.  

Don't leave me for a second, my dearest,  
Because in that moment you'll have gone so far
I'll wander mazily over all the earth, asking,

"Will you come back? Will you leave me here, dying?"

Never Leave your Loved & Loving ones deserted...!

I shut my eyes and...

A deeply romantic, brooding poem by Sylvia Plath. . .
Though it is written from the point of view of a girl, I feel it is equally applicable to anyone that experienced unrequited Love...!!...

Sometimes, we 'imagine' so much about sweet LOVE, but Reality turns out to be bitter...

We imagine a loving world, but then see that it is only governed by insensitivity, & what we purr-ceived to be Love, is only Conditional & superficial, and more of a business of calculations, profits & losses...!! :'(

Hmmm...read/feel on...!!

Mad Girl's Love Song. . .

I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,

And arbitrary blackness gallops in:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I dreamed that you bewitched me into bed

And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

God topples from the sky, hell’s fires fade:

Exit seraphim and Satan’s men:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I fancied you’d return the way you said,
But I grow old and I forget your name.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

I should have loved a thunderbird instead;

At least when spring comes they roar back again.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

Lovely Dawn and Pigeons

Lovely Dawn and Pigeons..Celebrating LIFE & Sun-Rise..!!! :) 
Hi pa...!

Look at this SNAP when U are Calm & NOT thinking too much...
Or Better still,

Please Be Calm & DO NOT think too much while looking at this snap...!!
Jussst FEEL..!!
That's Why in Japan, in ZEN Tea Gardens, we have to leave our foot-wear out-side... It's NOT the same motto behind-the-scenes as in India..in temples.. The motto is to remind us to "Leave OUR MINDS" outside & then go in...to FEEL the Freshness of Experiencing things like a new-born child...with complete innocence...without Bias...! :)

[Click on the above image to see it properly]

I too had jussst woken up in B'lore....& saw these Pigeons Awaiting the Sun-rise at the crack of dawn; Preeening, Cooing & Swaying in the gentle morning breeze...!

For 10 minutes ( I dont know..! Couldn't reckon the passage of TIME..!)...i Ceased to "EXIST"--so to speak...

I feel I was simply "LOST" observing HOW "ALIVE" they were to the BEAUTY that surrounds OLL of us...I truly felt BLESSED...!!

I dont know HOW or WHY exactly or WHEN me got out the Camera, put in the batteries...& CLICKed this snap ( & that too with such a Weird angle as you can see..!! )...!!
In short, it is Another of those snaps that...."get CLICKED" OLL by themselves...!!!
I was Jussst a DUMB, Medium...who Got "LOST" in the Utter Simplicity & BEAUTY of that Moment...!!!!
Now, THAT is WHAT is called an EXPERIENCE....!!! When the "experiencer" ceases to Be..!!!!


The great Indian Mystic/poet Kabir Das has beautifully explained why it is Impossible to meet GOD...!!!
He said--
"Look at the Irony..!!
When "I" was, GOD was NOT..
Now, GOD is here, but I am NOT...!!"

That's WHY things like True LOVE, the True DIVINE experience scare people..!!!
Because, LOVE is the complete DEATH of the ego...when u DROP ur sensation of YOUrself...You feel the whole of Existence..!!

It happens SOO many times to MANY of us---when we see HOW a Beautiful Painting or a Poem or a Program is BORN out of us...with us wondering later WHO made it...!!!

Definitely NOT us! Definitely NOT the MIND alone...!!! :)

Felt like Sharing it with YOU too...That's OLL..!!!
THANk you..!! :)

Take care, and...stop thinking, and start L(i/o)ving ! <3 :)

With LOTS of LOVE as Olways..
