Life’s Daily Cycles

Lifes Daily Cycles short poem

Photo by BoraBaysal


Life’s daily cycles:
Mind thinks, feels, dreams.
Intellect reasons;
Heart craves;
The “I” deluded, thinks it acts,
It enjoys, it suffers;
Waking, dreaming, sleeping cycles.

Each in Cycle their own, revel;
In the dim background;
The silent ever Wakeful Awareness,
Cycles never ending, witnesses.

Mind, heart, intellect ever unfulfilled;
Dreams return, ad nauseam;
Answers unfound;
Fresh cravings galore abound;
“I” in endless cycle deludes.

Witness ignored;
Cycles, relentless, churn and turn;
Until one day,
No more dreams, reasons, cravings;
No more ‘I’;
Only Witness remains.

Sun rises in east and sets in west, every month, moon appears and disappears, seasons come and seasons go, but heart rhythms are unceasing. Night comes and fades away- day arrives and gradually it disappears; in rain and in sun-

Take me to the place where the pain is far away To the place when I wake up and I don’t wish I was dead In the magic place where you and me are alone for as long as we
