I Ardently Feel

By Ashok Chakravarthy Tholana

PROMPT—I am grateful for ...

A spiritual thirst

An unending quest

Lurks in the heart

At the forefront.

Neither can I resist

Nor can I desist

The untiring spirit

The enticing pursuit.

I ardently feel, yet ….

I need more boost

Of spiritual instinct

To go deep to the root.

How to seek atonement?

How to shed attachment?

Yes, I am grateful for…

For the Omnipotent;

Whose weapon of potent

Spreads love, incessant

Shares pain and torment.
