I See You in My Desire to See You

I shut my eyes to the world.
In the realm of my mind
the two of You, love personified,
swing back and forth
on a flower-studded swing.

I try to ‘see you’, your divine feet,
the signs of the highest divinity on your soles,
the fabric and design of your transcendental clothes,
your most beautiful face,
your divine smiles, your lotus petal-like eyes,
your cloud complexion, Krishna,
your golden face, Radha.
I, whose inner eyes have been blind,
how can I catch a glimpse of You?
What I see in my mind is my desire to see You.

My master’s master’s master’s says:
Don’t try to see Them. Absorb yourself in Them so much
That they come to see you.
