      The Nondual Highlights
       
       
       

       

       
      Irish poet Gabriel Rosenstock is featured in two selections.
       
      The first selection is a link to an mp3 of Gabriel reading three poems in English and Irish to an appreciative audience. I think you'll enjoy hearing the poems in the spoken Irish. Two of the poems are printed below. Gabriel's transitions between poems reveal humor, commitment or surrender/bhakti, and a little bit of direct teaching of nonduality.
       
      About the second selection, Gabriel speaks of "Some new work in progress: Advaita-Nirguna Bhakti style, perhaps."

      BLIAIN AN BHANDÉ,  Year of the Goddess
       
       
      Taoi ionam
       
       
      A bhé luisneach
      A ghrian gan choinne i mí Feabhra
      A bhláth roimh am
      Soilsíonn Tú an oíche
      Titeann Tú id réalta reatha
      Sprais i ndiaidh spraise
      Is tá mo spéirse anois lom
       
      Taoi ionam
       
      You are in me
       
      Brightest being
      In sun-surprised February
      Flower out of season
      You illuminate the night
      A falling star
      Shower after shower
      My sky is empty now
       
      You are in me

      As gach póir Díot
       
      As gach póir Díot scallann an ghrian
      Ar Do dhamhsa gan chríoch
      Taobh dorcha na gealaí is geal
      Má osclaíonn Tú do bhéal
      Éalóidh réaltaí, canfaidh iomainn Duit
      Is Tusa iadsan
      Ealaí ag eitilt go gasta ar gcúl
      Conas a shamhlóinn barróg Uait
      Mura bpléascfainn Id réaltbhuíon?
       
      From each and every pore 
       
      From each and every pore look how the sun beams
      On your eternal dance
      The dark side of the moon is bright
      If you open Your mouth
      Stars will escape and chant their hymns for You
      You are they
      Swiftly swans fly backwards
      How can I imagine Your embrace
      Without exploding in Your galaxy?
       
       

       
       
      The Nameless One
       
      Gabriel Rosenstock

      melt my desire for You
      in Your desire for me
      desirelessly

      grey afternoon
      a nameless bird sings
      Your messages to us
      who does not hear?
      a single ripple of thought
      now silent:
      carry the birdsong
      back to its source
      its tracelessness
       
       3
       
      there is no name for You
      nor is there form
      in the now You are
      which hasn't yet been named
      never again will I name You
      am I not, too, the nameless one?
       
       4
      a blackbird has found a worm
      yellow beak
      black plumage
      pink wriggling flesh
      brown earth
      I am the worm
      I am that
      the eater
      the eaten
