A Sonnet to the Sai Baba of Shirdi

With a greying beard upon Thy chin
And a Holy cloth covering Thy brow
Thou smile at me, when all my senses go;
When my heart is weak and my skin is thin;
Thou give me enduring strength against pain,
Thou hold me up when I am feeling down-
And when in my selfish desires I drown,
And my own sins pour down as drops of rain
Thou show me way to Thine Holy Kingdom
Where Thy sweet children live in love and peace.
Let me bow down my head and bend my knees
And pray to Thee to take me to Thou home
O! The Holy Saint of the Shirdi town
Let exalted be forever Thy crown!

Purple Song

At the dawn of a day so long,
I sing for you a purple song;
Wearing purple you come along,
‘Cos a purple world is where we belong.

At the dawn of a day so long,
I sing for you a purple song;
Wearing purple you come along,
Before this feeling grows more strong.

At the dawn of a day so long,
I sing for you a purple song;
Wearing purple you come along,
Do understand; don't get me wrong.

Sonnet to the Seventeenth Star

The Seventeenth Star of the Eastern sky
Shimmer brightly over the world so high
Having sit on the deadly Scorpion
Till the afternoon, since the early morn
With Mitra, the friend, as your ruler
Bestow upon me the worshipping power.
Sometimes in light pink, sometimes in dark blue
But more oft Purple as your true hue
Twinkle forever and sprinkle below
On my dry life, all colors in rainbow.
Bring with your smile a shine every night
Fill all my mind with your divine light.
The Seventeenth Star of the Eastern sky!!
O Seventeenth Star of the Eastern sky!!
