song of india 1
From my mother’s music collection
 

One morning last March I woke up free.

 

I purchased a ticket for myself –

Destination: Jaipur, India – for 10 days.

I will be there during September’s khus pura chand.

 

What will I do?

More, what will I not do?

No chit-chat;

No treading the treadmill;

No thinking.

 

Whom will I see?

Nobody but God in myriad manifestations.

 

What will I ask?

How can I go on when I cannot?

How can I keep loving when I cannot?

How can I stop loving when I cannot?

 

I will expose myself

To how soft

India is.
