Little Altars Everywhere


You would be meandering by
Wasting your while
This world is not worth living under the sky
If you haven’t tasted your soul water
Other delights will turn bitter
Open your inner eye
Feel the inner wind blowing
Inhale the fragrance
Listen to the sound of the water flowing
Become your own lover
Open the folds bit by bit
Use your innocence to see
Not your worldliness
That will make it flee
The soul water is pure
Crystal clear
Drink it
Drown in it
Anoint yourself with it

– Renu Rakheja, “Soul Water”
