A drop

An ocean of dark hate
Purified instantly is
By a drop
Of pure love

I thought

I thought
By knowing more and more
I'll know you
But you told me to forget all
And what is left was you

I practiced and searched and discussed
To find about you
But you told me
To keep quiet and forget the thoughts
And what was left was you

Then I sang and praised you
And worshiped and offered you flowers
But that I realized you need none
So I smiled and that was you

Big things

Big things
we hope to achieve
ministers and leaders
to be we believe
will bring joy
and peace
and worry
decrease

But the truth be told
on small things, if we hold
a smile
a pat on the back
some bread in the sack
the kiss from a son
with a friend some fun
a joke from your pal
all this truly shall
hit a home run.

The tree

Enjoying the beautiful tree
I forget not
The skies behind it.

I am not from here

I am not from here
that is why I come,
stay for a while,
and go.

*

I don't know you
even if we met
a long time ago.
I hardly know me.

*

I am just passing
and trying
to find the treasure.

*

Like the sun
looks divine
behind the clouds,
so is the treasure
on the bottom
of the lake
of illusions.

Life

Life is a race
at full speed pace
strange case
a weird chase
We've got no place
no living grace
What to do?
Outside we grew
have we but knew.
Our life is blue
Can't win this fight
without some light
that really might
adorn the night.

Listen to the silence

Nothing around is nice?
The world is full of tyrants?
You just close your eyes
and listen to the silence.

You lost all your allies?
Your life is out of balance?
You just close your eyes
And listen to the silence.

Grey is the sunrise?
The standard is defiance?
You just close your eyes
and listen to the silence.

A beautiful surprise
and deep inside there's guidance
if you just closed your eyes
and listened to the silence.

The world

The world is what it is
You like it or not

People are good and people are bad
One guy is happy, another one is sad.
One will help you, one will cheat you.
One is scared and one will hit you.

You can't get it, you have no clue,
What is to offer, whatever is due.
Don't blame it on the world
Don't hit it with a sword.

You can't change a river,
You can't flatten a hill,
You can't golden the silver,
A butterfly can't be still.

The world is what it is
And beautiful it is
Just love it and enjoy it
It's not a contest, it's just a trip.

I am so good

You should do this
  He should say that
    She should buy that
      They should sell that.

I am so good
  at what other people
    should do!

Your light

Looking at the sun
  my eyes ache
Looking at you
  radiating billions of sun of light
    my eyes are cooled
      and warmed
        and cleared
          at once.

She would come

You are good 
or bad bad 
She would come

Young 
or old
She would come

Smart 
or not
She would come

King
or servant
She would come


If only you would call

Your presence

I begged for your presence
And yet you ignored me

I cried for your presence
And yet you ignored me

I fasted, I did not sleep, I prayed
And yet you ignored me. 

I gave up and looked around
At the transparent sky
And the green leaf
And the warm sun
And the silent night. 

You were here

all the time.

The cat

The cat
Has a nap
He is happy
Just a kitty
The sleep 
Is deep

No trouble
Just slumber

The stars

The stars are beautiful 
through the window. 


To get to the stars, though, 
one needs to learn 
to fly first.

Same

Small house
Big house
What's the difference?

Big car
No car
Same trip 

Big bed
Small bed
Same sleep

T-shirt
Suit
Same me

Wouldn't it be nice

Wouldn't it be nice
if we could turn our eye around
and look inside?
Then, we would only see light!

Kids fight

Real story:

- That is not fair! I don't want to play anymore!
- I don't want to play with you anymore either!

After 20 seconds:


- Should we play something else?
- Yeah, let's play something else!

Around the world

A trip around the world
happily ends
in the place it started.
Looking forward to getting home again!

What's the use?

We want this, we want that.
  We get this and get that.
    But what is the use?
      What is the use?

We read this, we learn that.
  We watch this news, we discuss that news.
    But what is the use?
      What is the use?

We work hard to be praised.
  We spend the night to go ahead.
    But what is the use?
      What is the use?

We argue a lot, we complain a lot.
  We gossip a bit, we throw a fit.
    But what is the use?
      What is the use?

Live in the moment and get rich

Living in the present can make financial sense.

Consider the following scenario: you want to purchase a service that will cost you $10 per month (for example, Apple Music or Google Music) and you plan to use it for 5 years.

If you are living in the moment, right now, the cost of the service is $10. That's about it.

But if you are a person who is thinking about the future a lot, you will realize the service will cost you 5 years x 12 months x $10 = $600.

Making a simple calculation, living in the present will bring you a quick profit of $590.

There!

Enjoying the present moment is good for you!

The door

I knock at the door.

The lock is on the other side so there is little I can do but sit and wait.

One day, you will come and open the door.

Trip to the ocean

How much more
do you think
we still have?

Not sure.

But I can feel
the breeze
of the ocean
on my face.

I am closer
than yesterday

That is enough.

If you are ready

If you are ready,
He will come.

If you are not,
He will not.

That simple.
Stop whining!

Only then

Thousands of words I tried to sing for you, but there was no response.

I closed my eyes and bowed down and touched your feet.

No words, no song, just silence.

Only then you noticed me.

not much

I think I did not accomplish much
in this life
said the husband
to his wife
after they all had dinner
and he tucked the kids to sleep.

His wife smiled...

Travelling to the temple

Travelling to the temple
On the mountain
I step on the bricks of the road
Each brick is helping me go forward
I realize that
Each brick is placed there
By somebody else

Life is hard

Life is hard.
We only have air, water, food, house,
people around and music.
How can you live like that?

Paintbrush

I am so proud
Of the paintings I created
Said the paintbrush
Forgetting the artist

the seed

How can I become a beautiful flower?, the seed asked.

Just let the water falling from the skies grow you.

How can I help?

Just enjoy the beauty of sky and be thankful for the water.

Which way?

Sitting in my car, I am planning for the trip.

I check the weather conditions.

I look up the address.

I study couple of maps, but they are contradicting each other.

I read all about other people experience with the trip.

I think a lot about what is the best way to go about it.

After long time, I am still in the parking lot. I did not move an inch.

I look at my master who is waiting patiently on the back seat, smiling: "Just start the car, I'll show you the way!"

the travellers

Tirelessly one looks for the path and when the way is found there is no time to waste, no effort to spare walking it.

The sun is shining, the wind is blowing, the rain is raining unknown, unheard, unnoticed while the traveller is walking the path.

As no end is reached and no result is gained, the traveller looks around and sees thousands of other travellers that, just like him, are walking their path.

He offers a helping hand to others return the favour. Thousands of travellers are waking together now and only so the end of the path is reached.

Travels

I left everything to find you
Travelled the continents and
The sees
Tired I returned home
And there you were
Inside my house
Inside my heart

I am important

I am proud
I think I am important
But I cannot find you

I am humble
Now I can see you
And realize
That I am important

Nov 12, 2015

Should I?

When in doubt
Ask this:
Will the world be a better one if I should?
If not
Then you shouldn't

Happy?!?

Happy?!?
No
Why? What is it you want?
This...
Here you are...
Happy?!?
Still, no!
Why? What is it you want now?
This ...
Here you are...
Happy?!?
Still, no!
Why? What is it you want?
I want what you want!
Here you are...
Happy?!?
YES!!!

one day

just like the leaf
pushed by winds
eventually falls on Mother Earth
so am I
still flying on the wind of my thoughts
going to find the way back to you
when you wish me to

Oct 31, 2015

My contribution

When I finally reached you
And looked back
You were always guiding
and helping
and comforting

- What is it that I did?
- You desired to come to me. That was enough!

Unlearning

- Teach me about You, said I.

- First you need to unlearn all you know about me.

I did that, it was not easy.

- Done, said I.

- Now forget all you think about me.

Even more difficult.

- Done, said I. I have not thoughts about You, nor do I know anything about You.

You did not say anything, but I realized that
what was left was You.

So lonely

so lonely, said a raindrop
falling among infinite others

two kids

Two kids were travelling on a train. Being summer, the air got a bit hot. 

One of them said:

- Let's open the window!

- For what, nothing good will come out of it!

But the first kid did open the window. 

- Come, come, feel the cool breeze blowing outside!

- You are just imagining things!

- No, no, no. The air is blowing, I don't know why, but it is. It is cooling my face and my whole body. 

- There is not such a thing as air. Show it to me and only then I will believe you. 

- Well you cannot see it, but if you just take your head out of the window you will also feel it. And also you can see incredible beautiful things outside. 

- Just let me be. I'll better have a nap!

Am I important?

My Lord, am I important or am I not?

My son, you are important and at the same time you are not!

How is that possible?

Just look at the tree over there. One leaf is not really important. But when combined with the other ones, they give shade, they give oxigen, and together with tree they feed families for years and years.

I want

I want the sun to rise
by itself
I want the moon to shine in the night
by itself
I want the rain to water the lands
by itself
I want the wind to blow and cool the summer days
by itself
I want the crop to grow
by itself
And the forest to clean the air
by itself

But, I want to be in control

Unexpected poem of titles...

you cannot
little water drop
beautiful
the way
silence
who do you think you are
trying
are not
thinking
freedom
the fastest path
the sun
what you are
you get
winter
if the rain would stop
bad event
new job

You cannot

- Lord, I would like to know myself
- You cannot

- I would like to find the purpose of my life
- You cannot

- I would like to become enlightened
- You cannot

- Lord, I would like to come closer to you, be one with you
- You cannot

- But what is it that I can?
- Just knock at the door!

- But the door does not have any handle
- It does, on the inside...
