ENLIGHTENMENT  By Ashok Bhargava

I live

like a Banyan root

hanging

waiting to reach the earth

for soil to cling to

for nourishment

for rootedness.

 

Without you I am

hovering

waiting for your hands

to hold me

to infuse hope

to energize

to begin life.

 

With you

I feel alive

I embrace you

like a Banyan root

that has reached the earth and

connected

to the soil.
