Every Day I Miss You - Poem by lalitha iyer

Days are racing ahead
Seconds catch up with minutes
minutes with hours
and hours rotate to a night
yes, a Night when the heavenly bride
unweils her celestial desires
or hangs up her crown
and becomes a new moon frown

I miss something
which may be your touchings
You are to me the Cosmic Secret
your body of truths invisibility secretes
in every living urge when distilled
i could see you smile like a new born child
you sleep deep within the gurgling brooks
and inside the breasts of all passionate beaks
in the smell of the forest flowers
untouched by hands of filthy desires
when I search you in the Science Schools
you dive into the Corals unseen pools

I miss you when the mob crowds me
I hate them for they distance you from me
they malign the air and pollute the water around
they make noises which bottle up the music of silence
Every moment awake I miss YOu
You who speak within all living beings
You who urge to mate
and drive the galaxies to roam in taste
you who is the desire and the desirous
you who are the maker and the sufferer
you who are the man and the mystery of life
you who are the power and the poor beggar
you who are the naked and the clothed Miracle............
