a gnomic verse

looking forward to looking back
facing outward while gazing in
secrets stowed in a public sack
motionless turns the swiftest spin

ditty concerning the question of the illiteracy of Kabir

It was penned without a pen
and composed without a pose
it was known some long-lost then
but away alas it flows

visage sans verbiage (rubai)

on the London underground
Meher Baba's face is found
by the Brit Museum blurb
is the verbless visage nouned

after Kabir

A dog am I and my master's Ram
around my neck he a chain has drawn
whatever way he's inclined the leash
that very way has my saunter gone
