Sathya Narayana

Holy Trine

From where, in the beginning emerged
The Universe; and in the end where embedded
All these planets, skies and oceans
Rivers, dales and tall mountains
Colours, scents and flavours
Charms of all shapes and forms
Grace of every phenomenon
Seen, sensed and savored
As part of every day routine
Ever imagined thou! Their origin
That power pool of eternal blaze
The source and sorbent in one
Lo! It is the holy trine! Mother divine!
Not just the woman! A mortal effigy
Oppressed under hombre hoofs
But know her as sacred pneuma
Take my word! All my fellow men
Whatever be her worldly nomen
Sister, daughter, wife or mistress
She is always the Holy Mother
In whose heavenly ardor
You are destined to dissolve
In life and after

    Striking use of imagery and very deeply introspective. Mother earth - sacred source of man's sustenance during his mortal existence. This is both beautiful and powerful.

    complete love is unconditional...doesn't expect any thing in return...motherhood is the example...a beautiful poem, thanks giving, to one's source or origin for one's existence on this earth...10

    nice poem sathya. i see that while others are fighting for gender equality, you are fighting for more than that- It seems to me that u think women are sacred.
