Inevitable Word

A Wherefore of The Spirit

Sonnet

I saw in the twilight a gleam of His eternal light,
A sunbeam from the high gaze of a Godhead.
I saw His spirit parade naked on Nature’s breast,
Trampling her will and scheme of things destined.

It raided her secret chambers in the void of matter
And discovered a pearl of roseate purple:
It dug deeper into a breathless mire
And found a broken marrow of a God immortal.

He was sleeping in an august wakefulness of delight
But shattered of limbs and nerves by a brute pressure.
It transfigured his shape into a limbless infinite,
He became a myriad movement of God everywhere.

I saw in the eternal whim of His spirit
A bright argument for the wherefore of pain and delight.

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.

It was I and a few wildflowers, 
 
 Shivering in wind and calming in the sunshine.
 
 We saw the rest of the world withering,
