When I'm blue

(2285)  Nupura chande susmita dinguli

Days are smiling brightly in cadence of ankle-bells;
With a garland of rays, timely comes the Charioteer.
Flower buds, unblown and sleepless,
Breath bated, yearn sincerely to get near.

As often as I think that far away go I,
He who always binds through love-ties,
In my ears He speaks: "Listen to songs aplenty:
Everybody, on the light, they beam.

"Which place is remote? Nobody is distant;
All remain mixed with cognition's ocean.
In a unit consciousness latent is that acquaintance;
It drifts in the midst of ecstatic reverie."

An end to the charade

(2284)  Rupsayarer aunginate

In the courtyard of form's sea,
You were consequential, oh the Unembodied.
With rhythm and melody, taking as family,
You attracted everybody.

With star after star the heavens are filled;
The air blows sweet and gentle.
The kash sways neath a mild wind,
Its gray-white wings extending.

Knowing You, it's not simple;
Love alone attains acquaintance.
Too-much-talk remains muted,
When finding You near.

This wretched beast

(2283)  Amay kena bhalabasile

Why did You hold me dear?
I've no merit...
I've no merit, I've no wisdom either...
What then did You see!

You granted the sweetness of sympathy;
You wakened understanding.
You gave success, You gave prosperity;
For I had been lonesome and weak.

You brought into a human body;
Onto thought You lacquered honey.
Then, a desire stirred for getting,
I just went and forgot Thee.

When the fair winds blow

(2282)  Tumi ele, amar kanane ei abelay abelay

You appeared
In my grove at this tardy hour, inauspicious.
Flowers mine all have started dropping;
Petals go on withering in the dust.

When there had been blossoms in the garden,
It had been awash with colored sweetness.
Then You came not, You deemed it improper;
Understanding Your game, difficult it was.

Once more will my flowers bloom;
Will new color and perfume rise in what is without hue?
Will my love-tree get infused with green shoots;
Oh won't You come to a bright Elysium?

The genuine You

(2281)  Aloker ei jharnadharay, snan karate ke go ele

In this same fount of effulgence,
To make bathe, oh Who came?
With a gold crown on Your pate,
On a flower garden You applied paint.

Having met, I think I know, I distinguish,
The respected Gentleman, love's representative.
To scatter motley mental states,
Arrows You loosed from a rainbow.

When there were no hues, no tints,
This beauty, where had it been hid?
And why indeed this Man of light–
Life You filled through color's flambeau.

By virtue of Your light

(2280)  Andhar sagar par haye aji

Crossing the dark sea today,
Who are You that came, oh Psyche's Enchanter.
I am unfamiliar with You; Yourself I know not–
But I know You possess attributes resplendent.

O'er the course of ages hopeful I'd been waiting,
Neath light and darkness, with everything revealed...
But You appeared not beside me, not by any means,
Oh the Moon, with Your heady luster.

To the extent of love, I have yearned for Thee,
You of bygone days, for the tune jangling...
Life's lantern, on its lampstand set a-blazing
To apprehend You time and again.

It just won't work

(2279)  Tomake bhalabese, amar e cidakashe

Holding You in high esteem
On the sky of my psyche,
Such ambrosia was exuded and came falling,
Profusely and privately.

I imagined: Ignoring, I'll go on;
I'll find peace in delusion.
But I saw there happens not oblivion
With this same thought echoing.

You exist, I exist–
All else I've forgotten;
There's no third one, any other,
With attraction of a honeyed quality.

At my heart's place hard-to-reach,
With ringing of cognition You are there;
Please come down into my thinking,
Contemplation's meditation-seat.

Hot then cold, warm then not

(2278)  Kache ese bhalabese

After having come near and having held dear,
Neglecting that, You have left me.
Unto You I called not, Yourself I did not woo;
Yet nonetheless You were gracious.

Whether I accept or not, myself You invite;
You rescue me, by punishment rectified.
Don't turn away from me, Lord; be not displeased;
Trampling upon my heart, pray do not go off.

I realize that my life is Your gift;
Love, that too I understand and admit.
Externally You are harsh, but inside You're tender;
At heartcore this thought sways back and forth.

Beyond credence

(2277)  Patha bhule tumi esechile

Losing the way, You'd appeared;
You had come into my compound.
Cloud-free was the deep blue sky;
With moonlight very soft.

On jasmine trees, flowers had blossomed;
In kash thickets, swaying had begun.
Gentle and sweet the wind was
With affection honeyed.

Leisurely, lotus-feet You had placed;
You flung open the bolt on my gate.
My own yoke of illusion thrown away,
You told: "Have no fear."

Who wins this wordplay?

(2276)  Bhomra bale bakul phule

Bumblebee tells bakul flower:
"Close to you I don't fly–
The nectar of your breast has evaporated.
Whatsoever had been yours
Fell to earth, cast upon the dust.
Your looks and luck have been finished."

Bakul answers: "Listen, oh Honeybee,
Love is never greedy–
Having approached, sit adjacent;
I have more to say."

Replies the Bumblebee: "There's no time;
In search of another bloom go I.
Due to talk time was missed,
And fear of dusk exists."

Bakul says: "Father Supreme,
You fathom heartcore's agony.
At Your feet sprawled I fall,
In pursuit of protection."

Simplicity or duplicity?

(2275)  Tomare peyechi gahane gopane

I have found You hidden at a site hard to reach;
In mind's paradise have You beamed.
Restless are You, anxious are You,
And yet tranquil in my psyche.

To You there is not a hint of pride;
Hey the Self-Effulgent One, You like to hide.
But stored in You are wind and sky;
All elements... who does not perceive?

In depth, You are the deepest;
Sin You demolish, hey Darling Dearest.
On just Your blessing, far withdraws the darkness;
The Sea of Splendor, no bar It concedes.

Ocean's blue or sky's azure

(2274)  Kon niilimar kon theke ese

Having come from some bluish niche,
To what far realm are You sailing?
Which blue tint's?
Who is that hard-to-get adventurer,
Whose song You go on singing?

All the vibrant waves of sea,
Your drums of triumph have kept sounding–
Surging ocean dances; its melody
You can hear at heart's core.

The acquaintance lengthy betwixt You and me,
Coming near in the stream of happenings–
Through joy and pain, smiles and tears,
You please shatter my stupor.

Anklets of just music

(2273)  Prajapati pakhna mele, urche kena ke jane

The Butterfly, wings extended,
Why is He flying, who knows it?
Today, in search of whom, He is
Strolling about in a pleasure garden.

No other thought is there;
Always He is coming in hope of the honey
In cordial stream from heart that's free,
Carelessly effusive.

With a spectrum of color is the Butterfly,
A sweet splendor on the buds of mind...
Ebullient is the speed of life
In anklets of just music.

Your qualities I cannot conceive

(2272)  Manane bhuvan bhariya rayecho

By thought the world You have been filling;
Nonetheless, why do You not show Yourself?
What's Your sport, I don't comprehend,
Through light and fest, through my life's wine,
Hey, the All-Pervasive Consciousness.

On rows of waves You race in every direction;
You don't tolerate the disgrace of darkness.
Smiling, You keep floating with life's pollen;
What a shining implication endless!

I cannot imagine Your virtuous story;
From one all alone You have become many.
Hey the Dear Ocean, Great and Perfect Knowledge,
How much have You become scattered?

With You I did not reclaim consciousness,
For You'd arrived in a dream
And went not tied into thought;
Neath liking's binding You appeared.

By day and night, for You I've pined,
Upon life's buffets and reprisals,
With the gain and loss, large or small,
With every rise and fall.

My worthiness You discern,
Who merits kindness You observe;
And so on strings of love You pull,
Ever in sight to preserve.

You arrived, a light igniting;
You removed the darkness gloomy.
Past imagination, in birth You appeared,
Through form making replete.

That which cannot be,
You made it happen through mercy.
You are the ocean of compassion,
Dripping abundantly.

I am frail intellect, You're the sea of wisdom;
At will, You have built the seven regions.
I am unit being, You're the Supreme Lord,
Holding me dear.

By Your play of form, oh the Formless,
What is this palanquin You bequeathed?
Mid the mind color You did smear;
Mentality You seized.

For me what had been in private,
Only that became Your favorite.
Layer after layer, stealthily,
You made bloom the buds of psyche.

Skyward the line of sight travels,
Hoping for arrival of which Guest,
Mysterious, by Whose fondness,
Lamp of hues was lit?

The path of Neohumanism

(2268)  Alote bhese sahasa ese

Having appeared suddenly, rising on lightrays,
A Fairy many-colored sings a song.
All bitterness, pain, and distress;
By sweetness He lets them be veiled.

He states: "I've come, the call I've heard;
Your pain I've understood.
Believe or not, but to My words pay heed:
Yourselves do I love.

"There was a time when none was there;
I was here by Myself.
Then you've arrived and Mine you've been;
You have fathomed anxiousness.
With me please come, for I'm resilient;
Unto heaven I will take through Neohumanism."

The equal of Your qualities I don't receive.
Hey the One beyond both time and form,
Having come into time, shapes You make constantly.

Yourself, none can bind;
None can befuddle You through any guile.
The sadhana for all is Your love-ties;
But even knowingly, duped, we keep forgetting.

Hey the Transcendent One, Sustainer of the Universe,
Upon Your grace the seven realms are reliant.
Having forgotten Thee on shoreless sea of blind attachment,
That I not keep drifting, for this same kindness I plead.

Both the heart and mind filled.

Blissfully I dance to Your melody.

Of all entities You are the combination,

For the sake of just You, pondering You,
My day, it goes away, it goes away.
The sleepless night, mixing with only You,
Thinking on the beauty, swooning it faints.

Myriad meteors get detached and cascade;
Many flights of cranes, wings outspread they race;
And multiple matchsticks, kindle light do they...
At none of that the mind does gaze.

I have come to go on doing Your deeds,
Your desire to achieve,
To mix with You inseparably–
Your ambrosia, like the rains.

About just You, to think and think,
So many days, don't they go off?
And yet You don't arrive, at my core You don't arise;
Maybe mine is not the true endeavor.

I know You love, understanding torment You abide;
And my sense of 'I', that You store close nearby.
But this Your pleasure and my conviction,
The two merged as one, it didn't happen.

To Your liking, please pick up and mold me,
Making better qualified to recognize Thee.
Except for You there is none else in the world;
Grant me this awareness.

Akin to Him

(2263)  Madhavii phagun shese hathat ese

At end of spring the myrtle, suddenly appearing,
It goes on giving a swing.
Hope that was in memory found expression
Upon just its inspiration.

In a tiny rose garden, that is not its place;
And also in a palace, one does not maintain.
A bumblebee searches for nectar in vain
At the wrong moment, at an hour inauspicious.

In its mind also, there is honey;
With form and flavor, it becomes overflowing.
Having loved, those who go near,
Only they discover it.

Mea culpa

To magnolia grove You had reached;
You had waited for me,
Granting unearned mercy.
In a huff had I been,
The doorway bolting.

The event of that day I'm not able to forget;
That memory affects the thought process.
A sweet distress of hope-and-despondence,
It gives sway repeatedly.

Even up to this day a magnolia grove is there,
But gone away is the lord of that sanctuary.
Due to only my mistake, at root of anxiety;
Love has disappeared.

Oh, You do not speak.
From sunrise to sunset I am busy,
And thereafter You don't tell me.

Time without limit is Your circumference,
The sky and sea, both on earth and in heaven.
But I am an agent of temporal confinement;
May my plight not escape Your memory.

I am a bubble on Your ocean;
So many waves, don't they constantly bombard?
This am I, then this I'm not;
With me, please stop playing.

The Creation, when it was unmanifest,
Good and bad would not have been.
Then You were entirely solitary
Ebony time-transcendent;

Brimming with scent, taste, and form.
By lightrays of vitality decanting,
With life a swell You stirred,
In Your existence a surge You awakened.

In abundance, profusely.

You alone are time-transcendent,
Beyond grief and happiness...
And so that's why to feet of Yours
Falls respectful greeting.

On a new dawn today,
Forget all bygone stories.
Slough decayed, come relinquishing;
Sing a song in the new melody.

Crooked and frothy is the eddy of infatuation;
It had kept you circling dogmatic thought.
With thunder's hand and firm conviction,
Shatter that courageously.

With new blooms a park I'm building;
Life I am infusing with new honey.
Having brought the ever-new into being,
Fill you the earth with green and tender leaves.

But no word did You say, why did You not speak?

The day goes away with Your name and song...
I run around in Your constant recollection;
But You did not give in, why did You not yield?

Myself I have lost within the sweetness;
Thinking outside of You, it does not arise.
