|| the eternal shadow ||

To the sun
i hand your heat
to the river
i offer your cool
to the winds
i hand your spring

To the flower
i give the colour of your lips
to the tree
the height of your touch
to the earth
your earthy fragrance

To nature
i dedicate the echo of your breath
in the garden
i plant the eternal tree of your faith
from your image
i take for myself
the eternal shadow
that comes to my soul
from your soul to
quietly tell me your unlived desires
the lonely monologue of your day
the solitary lament of your nights

In the idol in the temple
i offer your faith
in God
the purity of godliness
after i meet you.

(Painting : Somnath Hore)
