When your Name fell into my heart
every question in my mind
was answered by one breath,
सो ऽहम् - So'ham.
The distance wasn't great
from my crown to my breastbone.
Why did the journey take
ten thousand lives?
All I know is, there's a kingdom
in my chest now
whose government is the silence
of an endless glow,

whose boundaries keep circling
every other form
like a conch full of wings and sunsets.
When I stand at the center,
I have no enemies.
Everyone I meet is called
The Friend.
