some nights
I willingly drown
in luminous pool
of rogue galaxies

just like yesterday

    Dear Himani,

    Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’ve spent the better part of the last hour going through yours and it makes for a fascinating read. The haikus, in particular, are incredible in their quiet sincerity and simple sense of wonder at the mysteries of the cosmos, the heart and the Path.

    Much of your work seem to have been inspired by Sufism. Have you read Attar’s ‘Conference of the Birds’?

      Thanks a lot Shahzeb 🙂 a pleasure to have you here, really appreciate you taking the time to read! and its funny you mention about Sufism because for about last 7 to 8 years I have felt my sufi heart beating for the Beloved to the point where just 3 days ago I officially converted to Islam 🙂 so yes, I appreciate your recommendation and if you have anything else that you’d want to share , anything that you feel might help me on this Sufi Path..I’ll happily receive it with open hands and be only grateful 🙂 thank you again, wishing you much Love and Light!

    I would gladly drown in the galaxies of the divine, especially as described by your poems and I love the pics you find to go with them. blessings, Brad

    Thank you!
