I just happened to notice one creeping planter
that grew in one corner of my garden.
Green as ever, fresh forever.
It went everywhere, anywhere it desired to.
Sometime it seemed undirected,
at times every direction was its own.
And all the weed, bushes and unwanted
things that lingered around, did no harm.
What only mattered was, what nourishes it,
and what enriches it.
Everything else was neither good nor bad!
I was chasing an unknown path to seek
something that would bewilder me.
I wanted that light to fall on me,
hoping it would enlighten me.
I envisioned myself everyday in becoming,
someone with a new way of seeing.
But it took some synergy of silence and
introspection to discover,
that everything I ever looked for
was right here inside me.
There are enormous thoughts
running inside my mind.
Clashing every second, each
one of them.
Becoming a gigantic storm of thoughts!
And just when I want to
scribble it out.
It’s all gone and I have no words.
So much empty!
