Barefoot God

I could hear the steps,
Behind the walls,
Is he close or away
From where I stand.

Dark night whispers
Behind the white tent.
Don’t miss the morning star,
Make a right choice,
When there is still time.

Never guarantee us
A smile,
What is here,
Right now,
Is the happiness
To us.

Keep silent,
Listen to what
“There are no better shoes,
Than going barefoot.”

  4. dear and divine Serena… In Indian tradition all Hindu Gods are barefoot….. a great poet who came from Afghanistan …Muslim later in his poetry named Raskhan….at par with Rumi…. after looking a picture of Lord krishna barefoot..traveled with shoes to Virndavan …a small town in north India ….and sat outside the temple as priest will not let him take shoes to offer Hindhu God as no shoes are allowed in the temples…. as story suggest…. lord appeared to him and accepted the shoes….and the poetry of this simple person can equal any love or devotional poems in the world… this is the magic of God….and it is reflecting in your poems…be natural outside and neutral inside to receive grace of God…
    love all…
