CRATERS IN TIME








Like craters on the moon








Frozen in time









Raindrops on fresh concrete! 











LOST WISDOM







Shallow heart! 







Arrogant mind!








Lost wisdom! 























MIRAGE IN A MIRAGE



Mirage in a mirage




Dream within a dream




An illusion within an illusion




 Just the same! 



This man in the mirror

ILLUSORY BOAT



Ravaging rivers of desire



In-satiate Ocean!



Changing forms



Flooding emotions



Striving and struggling




The illusory boat! 






WRITER'S MIGRAINE




Craving for verses





Lost for words





Head splitting pain






The restless mind! 

MAD MAN'S DREAM



Ravaging storm



Silent Ocean!



In the depths of the void



A volcano!



All of this! 




Only a madman’s dream!

AS THEY ARE



Between life and death



Be present!



As they are!



Let things be!



Opinions will vanish



Attachments will cease



And all in a moment 



Non- duality! 

WANDERING WATCHER



Words wander





Thoughts stray





Lost in emotions






Someone watches!  






















HANDKERCHIEF IN THE ELEVATOR



Up and down!



Again and again!



Crumpled up and trampled upon



Tossed in a corner




Dropped handkerchief in the elevator! 

LILLY


The dawn breaks over the mountain




The autumn sunshine fills the morning



In the garden pond



Pink and perfect!



Gently afloat!




The Lilly! 

TRAVEL LIGHT



On this path to the cremation ground!



Greed keeps adding dead weight to my body!



My deluded soul foolishly clings on!



The heretic says!



Travel light!




What else will be left of you; but ashes!

CONFLUENCE OF SIX STREAMS


At the confluence of the six streams of consciousness!


Turbulently gushing and flowing! 


A whirlpool of phenomena!


Arising from this dynamic flux


Solidity, Identity and permanence!


A magical show!  


An illusion! A mirage!


Oh foolish mind


Don’t trust your eyes!


Don’t be fooled by all the appearance!


Don’t cling or struggle!



Just flow with the nature of Emptiness! 





WEB OF CONNECTIONS



One man’s joy will make everyone happy



One man’s pain will hurt us all



To see this is wisdom



To fail; is endless suffering!  



The heretic says



In this web of connections




There is no separate “I” my friend! 

DELUDED MIND



A web of stories




Life and blood




A creature !  




Clinging to these





The deluded mind! 

FLEETING EMOTIONS




Empowered by darkness






The candle flickers!







Fleeting emotions! 

INDIFFERENT UNIVERSE


The sky opens up!


And suddenly


“I “vanish


Burnt out by anger


Fully consumed by hatred


Emptied of all remaining hope


Nothing is left of me! 


Nothing except!



Twinkling stars and the vastness of the indifferent universe!

MOLTEN ANGER


Oh How much Misery! Oh! How much pain!

Can existence can be so weary!

Can life be so wrathful?

Can all of this; be of my own making!

The fire of hated burns!  

Burns within me!

Burning and charring

Even the remnants of my soul!

Alas!

Nothing good is left of it

Molten anger boils and overflows

And destroys everything in its path

Nothing is left, of sanity and rationality!  

Thanks to this! All my misery!

The heretic says!

To hold on to anger; is to live in hell

Oh foolish mind!


Drop anger before it’s too late!



HIBISCUS



Between dawn and dusk





Blossoming fully!





Not worrying about withering away






The hibiscus Flower!
