My dear Reuel

Silence is a source of great strength……….Lao Tsu


When I see rivers overflowing,

Hurricanes blowing,

Volcanoes erupting,earth shaking,

Urbanization threatening,

The cut-throat competition heart-wrenching,

Wars and disasters in waiting,

Man’s games, grotesque and stomach turning,

I look at the starry night

And think of your face bright,

So far, and yet, so near to my heart.


The stunning beauty of your looks,

Your cherubic silence and innocence,

The pristine glory of God on your forehead,

The effulgent beauty of nature

Shining on your cheeks,

All remind me of the beauties

Encompassing the exploration

Of the metaphysical plains.


Times roll back

And I become a child again.

I forget the cunning passages

Of false relationships,

The supple confusion of friendship,

The contrived corridors of hardships

And new pathways open

In the candyfloss clouds

Where we play, sing and dance

Forgetting the ebb and flow of time.


Together, we reach phenomenal heights,

A deja  vu panorama of past lives

And we enjoy the quietude and peace

Of the monks in the Tibetan caves

While your silence speaks volumes to me,

So soothing, so eye-opening.

And when we part,

Tears flow down my cheeks,

I listen to the rhymes serenading in the air,

Unraveling the mysteries of life

While your surreal charisma,

Your sparkling insight

Take me to your world

Attired in many rainbow colors

Where my sense of fearing

Is replaced by my sense of loving.
