the Axis




                THE AXIS----DR.K.G.BALAKRISHNAN

                    Turning round and round,
                     Day-night, spell by spell
                     The lucid core the Light
                      Energizing to the Ultimate
                      Giving birth to the Dawn anew
                      And to the Dream tranquilizing,
                      -To the Doom the d*mn the Past.

                      Lengthening to the length,
                      Measuring the Measured,
                      The unmeasured and the Measure
                       In vain, waving to the Wave,
                       To the Longitude of the Infinite,
                        The Magnitude Indefinite Full,
                        Shining as suns billions- seen
                        More an' more, unseen-in seen-
                        Sightseeing, the Source less, the Source
                        Ultimate, the Selfsameness the Dark, the Torch
                         The Tune mute, the Dumb eloquent, me the grief
                          Thee the Fragrance, the Touch remote to my fingertip
                          My teardrops dissolving to the earth, becoming
                          The Time the Lie!

                          Me the virtual,
                          The deep deep Sleep
                           The Dream!
                            Revolving round an' round
                            Thee-as the planet earth!
