The h2g2 Poem

Sleeping Jiva

She looked everywhere.

She searched everywhere.

In Athens and Vienna,

Berlin and Moscow.

Cold nights' fog rolled like ether,

Numbed her legs and senses.

Her hands stole the steely thunder

Her feet, a pink lotus.

Spread out and floating

Like a swan on a lake.




She asked everyone.

She met everyone.

In Rome and Cairo,

Hiroshima and NewYork.

Dry sun vapours lulled her instincts,

Slowed her thoughts and visions.

Her eyes followed signs and symbols

Her ear, the word of creation.

And into the deep chasms

Of her heart


Sleeping Jiva


She walked inward.

She ran homeward.

Childhood ways

The mountain river.

The Lord of her life,

The soul of her being

The cradle in her heart.

Swinging like a Buddha,

Playing like a Krishna.

A white lamb bleating,

Baby Jesus.

See unto
