Brick upon brick
Stone upon stone
I build my tower
a giant finger clawing towards the sky
blotting out the sun
who tries to caress me with his Golden light.


Under the spring moon
I asked the Goddess a boon
She gave me this song

The sun in the sky
shines always the same
Summer winter monsoon spring
Fleeting in my heart


Not in temples
or in idols
or in paintings.
Not in songs
or in ancient lore
or in mystic tomes.

Not even in love
in a true heart's prayer
in tears of ecstasy.

In the graceful silence of 'ma'
In the sated sigh of 'hA'
In the bold fury of 'kA'
In the delicate flick of 'Li'

She lives.

I sit on the bank
pondering philosophy
The river flows on

On a summer day
I winnow thoughts through sunlight
haiku, not haiku
