THE HOLY TASK Spiritual heart and intelligence well knows, But ego mind betrays us and delivers blows. When will this holy war cease in perfect peace, And the Grace of the Guru grant us release? Thiat's an earnest question each sadhak must ask As he ploughs the hard ground of the holy task. Self enquiry and devotional surrender, Are certain ways for ego mind to render Itself at feet of Sat Guru in the Heart, Who's promised he'll never ever depart, All earnestly practicing his wondrous teaching, Which from Arunachala he was ever preaching. So we continue to strive at the Holy Task, Who Am I? is the urgent question we must ask.
My Poetry can best be termed 'Post Modern Formalism'. It is an aesthetic poetry returning to mainstream of classical English Prosody as a reaction against to-day's overworked prosaic free verse, which as Robert Frost succinctly stated".... is like playing tennis without a net'. I repect the principles of musicality, and where ever possible similes are rooted in Nature. As mystical poetry they demand and elevated language. My main influential educators have been Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Algernon Swinburne.
