Not White Not Black - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

Not white not black
The color you choose
For your body I passed
Through the wood of neem
And I thanked Puri
And Mahodhadhi and its
Swargadwara I passed
You told mein dream
Last night and I passed
That is what you told me
To erase the sun and the moon
And I have done before you
O my dear, You are one
Who is here with me and
My only match box that I
Used here to enlightened all.

* Neem - a tree, Lord Jagannath made of the wood of this tree
Mahodadhi - Sea of Puri is named as Mahodadhi
Puri - East coast city of Odisha, India where the great temple of Lord Jagannath is there. Jagannath is Black in color and Balabhadra is white, Suvadra is yellow. These three colors represents the people of entire world.
Swargadwara -Funeral place on sea beach of Puri.
