Our Dual Nature

light exposed 
our dual nature 
where form appeared as reality
I cried realizing the great lie 
all is illusion
all vanishing every moment
the impermanence of form
except reality
veiled by duality

I entered a world of deceptive multiplicity
every soul cried 
yes you and I

No Reality But Reality

a sub saharan journey
into a ruthless desert 
accompanied by blue eyed Tuareg
I questioned every grain 
for what reason have I come
enamored by my reflection
my glance befell a mirage
seeking another
I saw myself
when my eyes met with mine
I knew none existed but me
I drank this reality
till thirst receded 
I uttered endlessly 
there is no reality but me
no reality but reality 

Immune to Pain

eyes closed

she lays

wrapped in chiffon

dreaming of the moon

moonlight beams

she opens her eyes


she sees the moon

a luminous  being

as she stands still


her heart pains

due to attachment

and detachment

immune now to pain

numb and serves

as a silent lover

to Hu and the Beloved

to every guest of the heart

and wonders

if that is the destiny

of this beautiful


great generous

moon being

did we arrive to leave

she wonders

I would rather stay

eternally with my moon

your presence is me in me

I know not a stranger but me to me

You Became the Gazed

beneath the stars

while you gazed

you became the gazed

she met your eyes

and witnessed her own

how you distract her

from everything

she wonders

who is thee

the distraction is the attraction

i dare to disagree

this distraction

is key to divine destiny

in silence i stare and the light of her glare
