Very Short Poems

 

The life you lead
Conceals the light you are.

~

Man can accept his fate,
He can refuse.

~

A moment sees,
The ages toil to express.

~

Love is a yearning
Of the One
For the One.

~

All rose from the silence;
All goes back to its hush.

~

Death helps us not,
Vain is the hope to cease.

~

Eternity speaks, none understands its word.

~

Fate shall be changed by an unchanging will.

~

For joy
And not for sorrow
Earth was made.

~

My God is Love
And sweetly suffers all.

- Sri Aurobindo, Extracts from Savitri

~

Beauty is truth's smile
when she beholds her own face in
a perfect mirror.

By: Rabindranath Tagore

Love is an endless mystery,
for it has nothing else to explain it.

- Rabindranath Tagore

 

We fear death, the unknown.
Death fears us, the unknowable.
We fear death's necessity.
Death fears our Divinity.

- Sri Chinmoy

Do you want to be always happy?
Then give up fighting
For negativity
And learn the beautiful art
Of self-encouragement.

Sri Chinmoy (1)

Hope
Knows no fear.

~

Hope dares to blossom
Even inside the abysmal abyss.

~

Hope secretly feeds
And strengthens
Promise.

~

Hope passes beyond,
Far beyond
The abyss of despair.

- Sri Chinmoy

A moment's truth
Can and shall make the world beautiful.
A moment's peace
Can and shall save the world.
A moment's love
Can and shall make the world perfect.

Sri Chinmoy (2)
