Sitting here with a beige apron on,

A white sheet is spread right in-front of me,

I smoke my cigarette while I look outside my window,

To see blue skies and the sound of birds on a tree,

My table-cloth has turned beige with left over elements just sitting there waiting for me,

A tea-cup and an old tea bag,

Some lavender flowers sitting separately,

A black notebook hidden under a cooking pan,

That is just empty.

In tune with your yourself, filling yourself with love, this is when nothing can distract you.

Hypnotic Amalfi Coast drive in Italy

If you are in tune with yourself, if you are so well self-connected and self-contained with pure serenity and happiness, filling yourself with love and admiration, feeling spiritually connected in a rhythm, this is when nothing can distract you or take away your essence of tuning.

The moon just keeps shinning

On a moonlight night what does the moon in the mansion of stars care for the dogs and their barking?

The dog is doing his job; the moon is smoothly fulfilling her task by means of her bright countenance.

Does the dog’s barking ever reach the moon’s ear, especially that moon divinely appointed?

The king drinks wine on the bank of the stream till dawn, and enthralled in the music is unaware of the croaking of frogs.
