Poems from Mountain Path -
« on: January 20, 2018, 12:10:44 PM »
I am giving some poems from Mountain Path, fir

st from July Sep 2017 issue:

Purnamidam *

Geetha Ravichandran.

*Om Purnamadah Purnamidam / Purnat Purnamudachyate / Purnasya Purnamadaya/
Purnameva Vasishyate / Om Santih, santih, santih.   

When I told you that I thought
the beautiful Sanskrit mantra
actually talks of love,
you said it is chanted at the burning ghats
when water is sprinkled
and the bed of flaming logs
consume all dreams and desires.
May be love is just a crackle
that sends sparks flying
which singe as they settle.
It is the memory that breathes
in the ashes, that feels so real.
And specks of warmth
let the mind heal and rise
to a new wholeness.
