Self Portrait


Photograph by Atul Ranchod

Is there a place where time itself
Can be kept at bay?
Although I’m not here to stay,
Amidst this ever changing clay.
What an amazing play!

To see past the seer,
To a sight unseen.
Where the very essence
Of beauty is kept pristine.

Then to acknowledge
The knock on the door,
Within my heart of hearts,
Is of a privilege beyond measure.

Gratitude is too small a word
For the One who bestowed
Me such a key from where
I can truly see.

I can acknowledge the beauty.
Beauty can acknowledge me.
This is at the heart
Of what connects you and me.
