The Unfading Garden
Budding flowers keen to disseminate aroma
Life sprouting, thriving; colors and fragrance effloresce
Losing myself in the buds of emotions and seasoned thoughts
Seems barren in this generous offering
Needling thorns abrade me, yet bother me not
For the varicolored garden replenishes me with delight
Bethinking myself of consciousness behind the varied cosmos
Trees bedecked with fruits, plants adorned by mirthful clusters
Baffling me, are the bearers accommodating or the ornaments altruistic?
Apprising me again of universal correlation
Bees swarming the lush blooms, bustling and humming,
Garnering nectar, never losing a moment
Counseling me to abide in the abundance that I am,
Inhaling the aroma of all pervasiveness, fragrance of oneness
Discerning the ambrosia of non-duality.
