           3   POONA DARSHAN - I  June, 1969

 

                The sky burns to an intenser blue;  
                a red bloom spirals  
                through an evening's heat:  
                this world belongs to the crows.  
                who hang on the wind.  

                                            Below,

 
                the whir of electric crickets  
                and the bleating  
                of a myriad rubber horns.  

 

 

 

   

                                              4   POONA DARSHAN - II   June, 1969

 

                                                     Well, my Master, we come to this:
                                                     I look at a picture. who hoped for a kiss.
                                                     In the soul's ambitions we sometimes   miss:
                                                     I leave with Knowledge, who came for Bliss.

 5   ON THE DEATH OF AVATAR MEHER BABA

                       who died 31 January 1969

 

   Great God in human guise
drawing by Rosalie Dunphy
   Before our human eyes
   Took off his fleshly cloak
   And played his final joke.
   No miracle to distract
   Us from the essential fact:
   He died of natural cause.
   Subject to mortal laws,
   He showed a way to God
   Within the world's facade.
