In this issue are some poems from a book called Darshan Poems by Naomi Kasnitz. I doubt you'll ever find a copy. They are poems to her Guru, whoever that was.--Jerry
The old woman in white embraces the kneesof the Guru,and she becomes a bride again.The pink embroidered roses on her sareebloom.~ ~ ~The mother with an infant on her hipleans over to catch a glimpse of the Guru.Her hair brushing across the baby's faceis the universe celebrating its potency.~ ~ ~What kind of love is this?I give him an apple,and he gives mean orchard,apple blossoms,apple cider,apple pies.~ ~ ~I don't want enlightenment or the lifeto come.What do I care for salvation,liberation,self-realization?I only want perfect momentat my lover's feet.~ ~ ~A huge door opens,A man's colossal form completely fillsthe doorway.Don't be afraid:He is as loving as he is gigantic.~ ~ ~Slowly I open my eyes and look down.In the valley of my folded legs,my folded hands appearlike two old friends.~ ~ ~He strides down the aisle,and we becomean undulating field of grass.~ ~ ~To accept the Guru!You might as well try to acceptan avalanche,the fire that's burning up your house,a hungry tiger stalking your heart.~ ~ ~Your mystery is an open dooron the rock face of the mountain,an old man appearing from nowhereon a starlit road.~ ~ ~The perfect balance of student and instructor;as the questions grow more complex,the answers grow more simple.~ ~ ~I dreamt that I was calling out your name,and weeping;I woke up listening to the rain.~ ~ ~Take him!Possess him!Claim him as your own!Don't be shy or stupid.Tell me,what good can someone else'sGod and Gurudo for you?
