These clouds gather and go 11.04.16

These clouds

Gather and go

~~~

These clouds of ignorance

Come and go

Veiling my beloved Moon

~~~

Sometimes the Moon shines

Its lovely light

Sometime it covers herself

With a dark veil

As if death permeates

The whole Universe

~~~

These clouds

Gather and go

~~~

The warm wind whispers

“The Moon shyly veils itself

In order to give herself to the right one”

~~~

My beloved Moon,

This path is long and painful and lonely

In order to reach your Heart

~~~

You spin the tides and the waves

To test the traveler.

Once you whispered to me

“Before you strive for Me,

First you have to cross the Ocean”

First step into the dry sand,

Then the waves,

Into the deep-sea,

Until you eventually

Reach the other shore

There we shall meet

~~~

These clouds

Gather and go

~~~

Down below,these shore waves

Have already battered me half-dead

How can I cross the Ocean and reach you

My beloved Moon?

~~~

These clouds

Gather and go

~~~

I wonder,

Perhaps I carry too much burden

No I can’t travel this burdened

With luggage from past and future

So much bondage to the things of this world

Still circling incessantly

Wishing happiness and escape from suffering

~~~

These clouds

Gather and go

~~~

Oh I’ve circled long

I see a sad child

A confused teenager

An over-worked middle aged man

And a lonely old-man

So much suffering

~~~

These clouds

Gather and go

~~~

I’ve tried some escape routes:

Eating

Following the ‘happy’ ones

Over-working

‘Rebelling’

And following the advice of the Ego

Yet I still suffer much

~~~

These clouds

Gather and go

~~~

Such is my bondage

To the things of this world:

Pleasure

Respect

Fame

Happiness

Oh my Ego and I have fought

A tough fight for these

We kicked and punched and grasped

Running and chasing

As far as India

Until home returned

To fight again

For things of the world

~~~

These clouds

Gather and go

~~~

We fought a hard battle Ego

It’s seems like it’s time to Surrender

Surrender to the All

For you shall never win a battle against

The One, the Divine Creator

Of you and me and All

Accept yourself as you are

An earthly human

Created in the image of All

Confused and ignorant

Not knowing the path

Foolish and sinful

So Surrender and appreciate this moment

~~~

These clouds

Gather and go

~~~

These clouds

Gather and go

~~~

Sooner or later the clouds shall return again…
