The Mystic


Invisible like the wind and crystal clear like water
The mystic's identity is so difficult to understand
His simplicity makes us fathom over his spirituality
His devotion remains a mystery to be decoded
In his rag, he has the stature of a king
A majestic behaviour seeps through his humility
He puts it plainly that he is not a worldly man
To be in quest of the Truth was he born
The materialistic world is not appealing
Instead of lying at the circumference
The mystic keeps moving to the inner core
He never speaks with a forked tongue
His message is straightforward:
The shore is made for weak people
The joy of living is in diving in the deep sea
Either you drown or you find the genuine pearls
Struggling against the waves requires courage
True knowledge lies in the heart of hearts…

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
