Absence & Presence

Days of absence, empty space, lonely space,
Space to celebrate
Solitude,
Freedom to explore
Self
Silent sacred space
To reflect,
Vast space, to expand!

Days of fulfilling presence, of every longed desire,
Presence of relational connections.
And reaching out to stars.
Presence of learning,
Of breaking ones boundaries,
Of outgrowing self and everything else.
And return to that longing for
Something deeper,
Wider, higher.
Something within chanting, neti-neti,
Not this, still not this!

  1. An amazingly sensitive expression of holding absence and presence both separately yet together in oneself. And not doing injustice to either! Nice....
