Great Circle of Fire

ram H singhal

Leave the familiar for a while.

Let your senses and bodies stretch out

Like a welcomed season

Onto the meadows and shores and hills.

Open up to the Roof.

Make a new water-mark on your excitementAnd love.

Like a blooming night flower,

Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness

And givingUpon our intimate assembly.

Change rooms in your mind for a day.

All the hemispheres in existence

Lie beside an equatorIn your heart.

Greet YourselfIn your thousand other forms

As you mount the hidden tide

and travelBack home.

All the hemispheres in heaven

Are sitting around a fireChatting

While stitching themselves together

Into the Great Circle inside ofYou.
