Inevitable Word

Man and God

Sonnet — Daily Poetry for The Master of Works #12

The human is still riddled with an animal form,
A hazy fresco of a spirit in motion.
He is a mind ascending to Spirit and Divine,
He is a soul mired in Nature’s infernal dream.

A Godhead dwells in his secret heart,
A Lover and a Friend in a limbless ease.
All worlds to Him reveal their unknown secrets,
In man He reveals Himself most.

All frightening gloom and despair melt,
When He strides through man’s mortal ignorance.
All knowledge and light into man descend measureless,
When he looks to the firmament of His delight.

When man becomes a god of his own destiny,
He grows into a wide measure of Krishna’s ecstasy.



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.
