Unquenchable Longing


Photograph by Atul Ranchod

Could it be?
The ultimate spotlight
Is shining on me?

How do ideas coalesce?
Remnants of former selves
Lending slight variations.

It seems so permanent,
This most illustrious moment,
Yet it has no attachment.

Like a chameleon it
Takes on the color
Of the next moment.

Reaching into the
Depths of this wellspring
I accept the offering.

When the timeless
Has been accepted,
Courage is nurtured.

To behold the
Beauty within which
Illuminates the light

Of the inner heavens.
What contradiction at times,
Unquenchable longing

Placed for a reason.
Then let the layers
Come off.

It is in the very depths
That fulfillment
Can finally be in sync

With the coming and going
Of a beauty that is
Never ending.
