Sampoorna :)

ऊँ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात पूर्णम् उदच्यते |
पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते | |

"That is complete, this is complete, from the completeness comes the completeness,
If completeness is taken away from completeness, only completeness remains. "

Infinity meeting infinity
in all its infinite grace
an endless completeness
you with completeness embrace

From the boundless unchanging
you created change
you conquered possibility
beyond measures of range

You tamed both power and delicacy
held them in your tiny fist
together they strengthen your creativity
in an orchestrated divine tryst

you neither fear nor abstain
you with precision all contain
your silent clockwork talks to me
you commanded the infinite "to be"

I feel so powerless and powerful at the same time
Nauseated, overwhelmed with a truth sublime
As limitless potential that knows its chores
Washes steadily on these quiet shores

I watch like a spectator, read every new page
As you bring the absolute immutable to engage
How shall I contain you How shall I hold
This pristine infinitum concealed and untold

Neither Joy nor pain nor fear nor care
you bring neither of these to share
Instead you humble and enrich me
with the simple fact that you have "begun to be"

May your abstract beauty always hold its place
May you hold this infinity you know so well always in your gaze
May the whirlpools within you consecrate and meet
May in all graces you be blessed complete.
