    Having crossed the river,
    where will you go, O friend?

    There's no road to tread,
    No traveler ahead,
    Neither a beginning, nor an end.

    There's no water, no boat, no boatman, no cord;
    No earth is there, no sky, no time, no bank, no ford.

    You have forgotten the Self within,
    Your search in the void will be in vain;
    In a moment the life will ebb
    And in this body you won't remain.

    Be ever conscious of this, O friend,
    You've to immerse within your Self;
    Kabir says, salvation you won't then need,
    For what you are, you would be indeed.

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
