Inevitable Word

A Lass

Sonnet

I saw a lass upon the ethereal fields of light,
Her body limbed of ecstasy by a God’s chisel shaped.
Her name spelt as if a syllable unsounded yet in word,
She the winepress of a gaze entranced.

She looked into my soul as I looked into hers,
As if we parleyed with each other in a court of eternity,
Through which the world entwined and tangled coarse
Became an unwilling participant in a playful infinity.

Her gaze stiffened like a cold void of death,
While her breeze wondrous caressed and kissed
My spirit deathless and rejoicing in God’s mirth.
She withdrew from the parley and unstiffened.

She became a wide-syllabled word of God,
Enchanted and happy of us, we never parted.

Inevitable Word is a pedestal for the newer forms of Poetry, Prose and literary Criticism. It is an attempt to bring into every manuscript the inevitable word and expression of the Spirit, as may be found in the Vedas, and more prominently, in the works of Sri Aurobindo.
