Drifting – Coomaraswami, New Delhi

I close my eyes and drift away,
To a time and space I’ve never felt,
Or known; like the present.

Help me collect these two artifices,
Gather them like bangles,
And place them in a treasury,
Where like memory,
It will float in pools and puddles,
Like buoyant flora.

Close your eyes and drift away,
To a time and space you’ve never felt,
Or known; like undying moments,
Where mountains hover and castles made of sand,
Silently speak to passing waves,
And the scroll of Time halts,
Abruptly; like a fleeting kiss,
In the darkness of midnight’s hallway.

Let us close our eyes and drift away,
Journey across landscapes,
Through alcoves and groves of gratitude,
Till the tranquil Moon smiles,
And we bathe under the raindrops of Paradise.
