Life on the Illuminating Edge - Childhood is Over.

Posted by Yoga Professionals on September 27, 2018 at 8:05 PM



Childhood is finally over,

now you are not here

I have no one

to play with

my leela brother

by my side,

to dream

it all into existence

dance, sing and confide.

Without you I cannot remember

the chants and incantations

we sung

to call forth protection

from the warm golden sun.

Who will we share our stories

of fairies, kings and queens,

teenage mutant zombie’s

from an 80’s illusory backdrop

not a Hollywood movie screen.

We could always find the

ridiculousness

in just about anything,

laugh so loud and hard

at the absurdity,

this Maya masquerade,

even if today

my sense of humour fades

embers remain

glowing in my ribs,

gently stoked

after so many days.

Now what is left

is the silence,

silence,

but for Krishna’s soothing flute

and Govinda's innocent smile.

I hear the glory, the simple

melodic truth -

that we have always been one,

born this life

to hold out our arms

for the child,

all creation’s daughters

and lost son’s.

And now a new path

whispers our name

as yet still to unfold

but through the ash and smoke

of a 1000 cremation fires

Shiva’s steps illuminate

beneath our feet,

taking us down

closer

to the answers

of birth and death

and this life

on the illuminating edge.
