Odyssey……..

As I began my Pilgrimage,
I said to my soul,
“The fog has cleared now
and the sun will shine
bright in the clear sky.
Let us go on an odyssey”
My Soul said,
“I was waiting for you
to get ready,
for my odyssey
began long time ago…”

I walked for some time
and then I said to my soul,
“It is too hot and sunny,
let us have siesta under
the shade for some time,
before we resume our
Pilgrimage”
My soul said,
“you take rest
I will watch you and
when you wake up
we shall resume our
pilgrimage”

I walked for some time
and then I said to my soul,
“let us watch the sunset
and the ochre at its backdrop
before we resume our
odyssey”
my soul said,
” You watch the dying daystar,
I will wait for you and we
shall resume our odyssey.”

I kept on walking until night
and then I said to my soul,
“Let us sleep this night
and listen to the songs
of the stars up above,
for we will resume our
pilgrimage with the first
ray of light”
My soul said,
“I too shall listen to the
souls who have become stars
in the solitude of night”
“I will wait for you
to open your eyes and
we shall resume our
Odyssey”…

As my eye lids became heavy
with sleep,I heard my soul
whispering these words,

“As the world sleeps
let me tread the path
alone as far as I can .”
“Let me taste the nectar
before someone else
tastes it.”
“let me drink the dew
drops before the thirsty
sun quenches its thirst.”
“let me become the Diamond
before the coal mines crumble”
“let me clean my Heart
before someone again wounds it”
“let me die once again
before I reincarnate”
and
resume my
odyssey.”
