True with the blue


“This above all: to thine own self be true, 
And it must follow, as the night the day, 
Thou canst not then be false to any man.” 
 
William Shakespeare, Hamlet



I am here, blue ocean within
I am here, blue sky clad
Eyes shut, insight full, rippling
Calm cypher in the middle of the rippling
I am here calm, so true with the blue
No dawn and no dusk
I am here, true in the blue
No trumpets of agony and revenge
Just the wave music of blue all-around
I am here calm, so true with the blue
True with me and all the me around
I am here, blue ocean within
I am here, blue sky clad




 For Wednesday challenge and for Jayhawks ' 'BLUE' inspiration...

  1. An interesting combination of prompts. I like the idea of the blue sky and ocean being true to their own natures.

  6. "Eyes shut, insight full, rippling
    Calm cypher in the middle of the rippling"

    So that's how THERE one can get in meditation. I've always had a bit of hesitation to just let go to that point, but your poem makes it so attractive!

    "True with me and all the me around
    I am here, blue ocean within
    I am here, blue sky clad"

    Truth, and truing the line are more linked than I thought.
    Thank you for this poem of ministry!

  11. The repetition in this gives it the feel of a mantra, a comforting re-iteration of a credo.

  13. This is lovely Sreeja, the rippling around and the truth within. There is a photo of the Buddha sitting on a louts flower, untouched, while elements of rage and chaos circle him, fire and storm and decay. A persona of holding faith within yourself. Beautiful.

    1. Thank you Archana....I always wanted to paint Buddha..but somehow couldn't decide on 'what perspective should I do that...maybe your comment triggered something ...I am not sure still...and when we hold that faith only honesty comes...a rendezvous with yourself.....
