The Magnitude

Poem 2/22-2-2021/From the book One to Infinite


The Magnitude-/22-2-2021


                        Never from the Nil!-

from the One alone to the Infinite the Full-

the Breath the Flow rotating-

repeating this this this-the tick tick tick-

swinging the Pendulum- the Eternal Swing!

                        The Magnitude-the First-ever-

the Immeasurable the best-

astonishingly Cute-

chanting the Rishi- the Eternal Zest-

but curtained from the physical eye-

thus the Query Eternal- The Why?

                         The Rishi- the Guru-

the Proclaimer of Great Indian Thought-

always welcoming the intuitive Bindu-

the Spot-

worshiping assimilating and absorbing-

the Breath of the tranquilizing Magnificent-

The Magnitude!
