Welcome to various verses, a platform to share my poetry with family, friends and communities, old and new.

     The poem below is my most recent.




“You are th@, Shvetaketu, you are th@.”

 The Chandogya Upanishad


“Truth is my God.”

 Mahatma Gandhi


“And, th@’s the truth.”

 Edith Ann (Lily Tomlin)




@ this point on this sphere’s surface,

@ the mid-point of infinite tangents

          in space,


@ the head of my contrail

          in time


@ the offing on a horizon:

the natural universe dancing around it,


the sphere spinning like a dervish,

the stars staring;


@ this point

          would I could sit


mind in heart


heart in love


love in joy


without condition


without thought



@ one with th@
