Lost In Your Mandala
Author: Pondering Red


How do you feel ?
meditation dripping down
your long lean
architects body-
blond hair tossled

How do you feel ?
after numerous trips to the
sitting lotus - legs crossed
forever now..
Giving up
familial duties--
no responsibilities-
Lost in a haze of mantra-
aum aum aum
humming - soaking up the resonance-

How do you feel ?
Does the mantra-
the almost satori nirvana
decades induced
dull any sense
in you ?
aum aum aum

And now still
in Kulu
you sit
and carress the mala beads,
one after another-
deadening any sense,
any responsibilities-
free as your guilt will let you-
swami guru man

How do you not feel ?
lost in this trance-
eating chipates and hummous-
a decadent coffee
every now and then

How do you feel ?
You have lost it all..
Trapped in your own mandala....
