Independence




A poem I wrote was featured in “Old City Life” - a lovely local magazine - back in 2014. I was asked to write on the theme of "independence."


Enjoy!




independence

a word of heft

perhaps evoking images of governmental documents

which further

emerging democracies

freedom from repression

self governance

all marvelous associations

regarding that relative expression of

independence

but for this one

it is about Moksha

sanskrit word describing the transcendent

inner freedom

that can come to maturity

even behind prison walls

it is an emancipation from

inner repression

a return to Nisarga the natural state

wherein our primary identity resides

in pure awareness

in that great inner freedom

independence

indeed a word


of heft
