Inevitable Word

The Myriad Soul

Poem — Daily Poetry for The Master of Works #7

Rapture-buoys floating upon
The wide seas of my soul,
Like happy dreamy children
Squatted in even motion awhile.

One incarnated of a primal word
Leapt to freedom of choice;
Another still dreamy and cold
Sought the embrace of a denser bliss.

The wide seas of His spirit
My soul a portion is
Does not punish or reward,
But apportions itself to individualise.

God hath a dream man must embody,
God hath a design man must wear,
God to man must lean from His ecstasy,
From man God involved rise and aspire.

In the Ocean of the ineffable All
Lie the seas of my myriad soul.

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.
