Krishin Rahi


Day and Night

The day is for all
The night alone is mine
The day is the fight
in which, like a soldier, I engage
along with the rest.

The night has its own essence
its zest.
It is aware only of itself and its own kin.

The day is a cup of poison
which needs must be gulped
Death levels all
Night alone breathes in Life
Distinctive in each living being.

During day, mixing with fellowmen
I lose count of myself
and shed all hope

The night retrieving this precious Me
Robes my aspiration
in a seductive dream.

The world is made not of reality alone
Dream too has gone into its making.
