The following poem which has been published in several spiritual journals was inspired during one of Mitra's early morning walks around the Woodbridge Lake in Irvine.


I AM Moonstruck
I AM Sun stroked

The Sun and the Moon
The beginning and the End
The Greeting and the Farewell
The light and the darkness

The Eternal Rivals
Have come Together
At the lake in peace.

A Reunion of Opposites

In their Honor
I have cleansed my House

of Thoughts,
the Unwanted Guests
Intruding at all times
Without invitation
And Quick to Leave
When Receiving No ATTENTION

I AM Calm,
Choiceless as the Lake
Reflecting the Sun and the Moon
In Joyful Awareness.

At 6:45 A.M.
Late September
At the Lake in Woodbridge.
