Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Ofcourse in this new month of CDHK we will have the Ghost Writer posts on Wednesdays. Today (July 2nd) we have a wonderful Ghost Writer post by Kuheli of Kajori. She has chosen to write a GW-post about Kabir an Indian poet, saint ... I think it is a wonderful GW-post. Thank you Kuheli for sharing this wonderful post with us here at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.
Have fun, be inspired and share your inspired haiku on the post by Kuheli with us all.
In this edition of ghost post I’m going to introduce a prominent literary master of the Indian tradition - the poet-saint Kabir.
|Kabir ... Indian poet-saint|
O how can I say He is not like this, and He is like that?
If I say that He is within me, the universe is ashamed:
If I say that He is without me, it is falsehood.
He makes the inner and the outer worlds to be indivisibly one;
The conscious and the unconscious, both are His footstools.
He is neither manifest nor hidden, He is neither revealed nor unrevealed:
There are no words to tell that which He is.
only the sound of the breeze -
at last - Lotuses start blooming
in the old pond
Awesome ... I think I have caught the essence of the poem by Kabir .... and now it is up to you my dear haijin, visitors and travelers.
