40 Days of Poetry: Day 28

 

How I was Adorned with Honor

(Sehra

 

In the depth of my heart

Harimandir lives!

 

When I realized Akal Purkh

The Akal Takht came inside me too.

 

I belong to Guru Ram Das.

The Khalsa Panth has adorned me with Honor.

 

Akal Purkh Illuminates me.

 

Prana and apana merge.

Rising . . .

Up through Shushmana . . .

 

Electric!

Radiance!

Sea of Joy!

 

Inside . . .

Outside . . .

Everything is God!

 

In God I dwell . . .

God dwells in me.

 

Oh Yogi! Within the Harimandir

My Union with God

Took place.
