IN MEHER BABA'S GARDEN

Shadows, reflections
ripple in the lake.
Brimming with irony,
every pore of life
weeps and laughs.



 

 



BY MEHER BABA'S LAGOON

In the morning ecstasy
of all-out cicada song,
the sunlit and shadowed
greens, browns, and blues
of the woods breathe
Your Name, the One
that undoes all other names.



 

 



SHINING THROUGH


Far, far
larger than letters,
than life,
Your Smiling Face,
shining through
every particle
of existence.
