A new day on the rise

(2773)  Dak diye diye balechile

You had told, ever calling:
"Wakened, rise all you asleep."
Mixed inside both sky and air went
This same call, like shade of wasteland-tree.

A desert's heat on sands of early morning
And in woods with grass, fresh and green...
But in a floral garb at core of psyche,
Hair-braids tied and made to swing.

Upon horizon the call went a-gliding
Behind Eastern Mountain[1], a crimson dawn rising...
To the evening sun's glow ruddy
With ambrosia of love's stream.

An absolute necessity

(2772)  Je chande mete uthecho tumi

To the rhythm by which You have risen frenzied,
The world goes on dancing to it.
Seven regions You have pleased
Through subtlety effusive.

The earth is painted in Your colors;
Everyone is throbbing with Your implication.
Resonant with just Your reverberation,
In that ideation all become senseless.

Beyond speech and path, mind You transcend,
Compliant with both form and formless.
Through Your song of love, always eloquent,
Identifying You became imperative.

Embrace the path

(2771)  Tomar pathe prabhu

Master, on Your path,
An exploration of effulgence,
For my entire thirst,
It manages a finish.

Upon night extremely gloomy, it supplies the target;
On wagon of a sunny dawn, it recites tales various.
It tells "Simply you go on– there's no block, no prohibition;
Only move along, having sung the path of movement's song.

"Of path there is no starting place, it also has no ending;
On path alone, your residence– the path is your country.
Behold, in movement's rhythm neither pain nor misery;
Everything that you've attained is the path's achievement."

His web of love

(2770)  Balechilo ese gan shonabe se

He had told, coming He will sing a song;
In hope of Him alone I count the moments.
Day departs, close by the night draws;
I don't hear the sound of His footsteps.

A young sprout went and became a huge tree;
A crowd came through flowers and leaves.
In vain decorated I'd kept a dwelling;
I weep like a cobra absent gem.[1]

In light and darkness, crest and trough,
At His name still I rise, in dance absorbed.
A mind given by Him and a life that's His only,
Taking them I weave just His love-mesh.

Even when I'm missing Thee

(2769)  Tomari patha ceye tomari bhavana niye

Thinking of You only, watching just Your pathway,
I have been waiting, Dear, in hopeful yearning.
You alone are my delight, a love-filled song;
Catching just Your flow, my psyche goes racing.

Neath the light of day and in ebon of Your night,
Ever-new perception in tune and jingling do I find.
Amid blooms in varied hues on a swollen river's bank,
A psychic garland sways with feeling honey-smeared.

I have come to this world, Lord, time and again;
Of millions of me-like atoms You are the aggregate.
On my mental firmament, Your compassion sails;
With dance-significance, cadence and sweetness appear.

The catch

(2768)  Jeneshunei bhul karecho

Purposely You have blundered;
My home You've departed.
In this cavern, become dark,
My lamp You've ignited.

Day and night I had called–
So much jasmine, dropped at dawn.
A heart set aflutter by windstorm,
Oh have You forgotten?
On eyelids damp today is alertness;
You have smiled with effulgence.

I'd been knowing You remain distant;
Just staying afar, to proximity You summon.
Only from remote, You coat with love's pollen;
imperceptibly You gambol.
But today, my mistake and my serenity,
Their removal You have granted.

At humble hut of mine,
Oh I, with lamps and incense,
I decorated not thereby.

Sun, having set it has left;
Lost, a colored portrait has gotten.
My all has mingled with the darkness,
On a watch[1] extremely tired.

You came with a surreal effulgence;
Whelming mind, both cadence and anthem.
You emanated love golden
At heart-core, deep inside.

Sage advice

(2766)  Asbe bale giyechile

Telling You will come, left You had;
You did not arrive.
Wiping eyes, You had said:
"No, do not cry!

"The setting sun leaves at dusk;
Again it comes in dress of dawn.
Having gotten lost, the evening star,
Star of morn, did you not see, it becomes.

"Akin to that I come and go,
Like seven colors of a rainbow.
I am leaving, saying I will come again;
For a short wait, please abide."

A farewell to the Author Of Benevolence

(2765)  Jabe jadi jeo cale

If go You will, then depart please;
But don't leave and forget me.
On spreading multi-colored wings,
Unto some mount they'll fly soaring.

By rays of a dappled day's hope-light
And by the jet-ebon of gloomy night,
Both good and bad exuding life,
Stirred is an unremitting speed.

At home You dwell, outside You dwell;
What's not either, also that You've kept held.
Arrive what will, that You have checked,
The flame of wisdom's lamp igniting.

When contemplating You

(2764)  Megh sareche cand utheche

Clouds have withdrawn, the moon has arisen;
Mind has been enthused by Your meditation.
Songs of misery and mirth's memory,
Today on the same seat have they perched.

The earth floats on a stream of moonlight;
Tethers lost, effusive is the mind.
The emptiness, with fondness fully occupied,
My gloom is concluded.

You are in the midst of everybody;
You are the ocean, firmament kissing,
Having filled to brim the seven spheres,[1]
From somewhere hard to reach, in secret.

Within the mind You are concealed;
Secret thoughts, them all You perceive.
To talk a bit never comes to pass;
Even before speaking, You already hear.

Of days and nights, those I've collected,
All the flower-colors' love-threads,
Tears from every eye throughout existence,
And also a tiny song, held do You keep.

In Your presence I want naught;
In Your knowledge is my all.
What You wish, do only that;
Still closer please pull me.

Tangled with eyelids a drowsiness had been there;
In it brimming were the drops of tear.
I'd been crying, calling all the day through;
At the path of Your arrival I had been gazing.

Day retired, came the evening star;
Rosy complexion got lost in the dark.
Withered went my floral garland,
Upon which love's pollen had been smeared.

In a lifetime, hope after hope appears;
Yet ever they remain hushed in speech.
Lord, I won't get dejected, never forgetting You;
Attuned with thought, rhythm and song I'll keep.

On that same evening, alone had I been seated;
Without saying anything You entered.
It was cloudy, blueness did not get observed;
Meanwhile on that firmament the moon beamed.

The Rangoon creeper, unto me she'd proclaimed,
A lost heart's search had she made...
By gaining You, become sated had they,
Her hope and affection, instantly.

The river's babbling notes tell a story;
She had danced along, Your sweetness taking.
Ballads to Your love, a history of You only,
In many songs had floated with cadence and beat.

You had arrived.
Thorns in a floral garden, setting aside,
Amid the petals You had smiled.

A drop of dew sways to and fro;
Obeisance at Your feet, Lord, it made known.
A green blade of grass, tender and mild,
You'd sat upon it, carpet-like.

With Your smile the earth got filled;
Sensate and witless gained new spirit.
Sweetness came into a heart defeated;
Hey Formless One, beauty You supplied.

In the floral pollen, with love and devotion,
Lord, You're mingled with each atom.
On a restless wind, in a playful vision,
Do You float along sensory perception?

A heavenly floral wreath unto Earth You brought;
Ardently everybody You adorned.
Hearts You filled with cadence and song;
Watching with a steadfast gaze, on You've gone.

Fondness ungrudgingly You did pour,
Judging not if scholarly or uninformed.
For the sake of bringing smile to the lips of everyone,
In this world You infused beauty and flavor.

With many a dance beat You had come
Unto my paltry hut,
Late upon that night rain-washed.
There'd been no oil or matchstick;
A lantern did not blaze to raze the dark.

In secret had it been, Your going and coming,
With divine game to inflate my sobbing and laughing...
Granting a mute soul leave to speak
In hurricane and hailstorm.

Advent in stealth and exit surreptitiously,
Acquisition of a flash of light momentary...
Afterward I'm singing songs, based on memory,
To forget an adverse thought.

In life a lively fairy did appear;
In the world love He poured lavishly;
Others are not strangers, not strangers.

Lowly or great, He sat on the same seat;
Fascinated He made every psyche.
The smiling fairy whispers, He whispers.

Upon darkness color He kept pouring;
He declared: "I see everybody...
Always I am with you, constantly;
Treat as fact: Humanity's victory will happen.

"I don't regard the atom as insignificant;
I know that Cosmic Entity is by atomic aggregate.
Eliminating all filth and fatigue of olden past,
With Supreme, make a heart-barter."

On attracting, You've brought near those remote;
Never did You stay forgetting even the ones close.
By Your sweet touch, by Your sweet mirth,
With sweetness You have beamed.

With tender and severe both, You are glutted;
Gentleness of You, at interior it is.
Having given hardness to the bud of lotus,

Do say why.
Though You're filling both the atom and cosmos;
It seems as if You're far aside.

On Your mental firmament, I'm an atom trifling,
Like a bubble on the ocean, I concede.
Having come from You, in You am I installed;
Know that finally to You I'll go and unite.

In light and darkness, at sunset and at dawn;
Looking to the front, on Your path I walk.
Absent You, there is not a place for me;

Kindly come with intimation, welcome I did not proclaim;

Instantly, a deathlike sleep You did break.
"Awake, the night has gone!", You declared;

What I've craved, that I've gained, a tiny bit;
Things I did not wish, at heels they've nipped.
To the Rangoon creepers at the mansion of my psyche,
By whose pull comes a-racing the carpenter bee.

Like a heart's vital pulse in sweet bower of mind,

Life-breath of my ambrosial feelings.

Central gem in the ring of awareness,
Stream of mind You pull adjacent.
By sensation this I know, I comprehend:
Your gift of kindness is in everything.

From afar You stretch to farther still,
From ocean depths to mountain summits.
Around You an atom dances;
Of that dance there is no ending.

You are my destiny

(2727)  Jiivaner dhara sagare dhay

Life's current rushes to the ocean,
Sometimes ebbing, sometimes flooding.
When it's such, why not that stratum
Goes on thinking of Thee?

You are the sea of kindness, jewel of the eye;
Greatest of all, it's You that I realize.
The Everlasting Entity, You alone know I
In depths of thought surrounding Thee.

Darling, for an instant You don't forget me;
You make enlightened via countless streams.
The peacock-cry of mind dances, tail fanning,
Each and every moment in rhythm and melody.

Throbbing with bliss and dancing in ecstasy

(2726)  Sharada nishiithe tomate amate, dekha hayechilo manovane

On late night of autumn, between us
There had been a meeting in mind's garden.
With a scent of night jasmine, to the sugarcane rhythm,
In a discrete shape You had come.

In my mind what dark clouds had been,
In an instant they were ousted.
Before earth-grown silver's form,
Who knows it, where they floated off!

You and I are with one and the same mind:
God Supreme and molecule becoming nearby.
With enchanting bliss, nectar's exudation,
In a happy dream today that is my vision.

Onward to Thee

(2725)  Surer sarita baye jay

The river of melody goes on flowing
On her path, regarding no obstruction.
Her target is that Ocean,
Whom she has viewed in meditation.

On two banks is His tale, His poetry;
Due to Him, sweetness is a continuity.
Amid His thoughts, pain forgetting,
She has raced in only His direction.

My psychic stream craves only Thee,
Not staying tied to stagnant thinking.
May she go on grinding stones impeding;
At Your feet, this is her supplication.

Believe it or not

(2724)  Tumi jyotsnar snigdhata ene diyecho

Moonlight's soft sweetness You have brought;
You have poured a shoreless love.
Heaven's flow of copious ambrosia,
To greatness man You've lifted up.

Staying very near, affection's beauty having smeared,
Mid the source of inmost feeling, calling everybody,
Golden chains, broken You've abandoned.

Any bit of sweetness is all Yourself including;
Any little bitterness, from forgetting Thee.
You have gone on singing the mantra of liberation.
