I am in search of You.

I went to my garden to look for You
but You did not let Yourself be caught.

Oscillating in the swing of hope and despair,
my mind rushes unto innumerable unknown worlds.

From wisdom talks
and discussions on philosophy,
nothing was ever gained.

I searched You
in the depths of the sea,
in gardens and forests,
in the various beautiful forms of flowers,
in the sky and in the air.
But I did not search You
in the depth of my mind.

----------------------------------------

I am in search of You.
I keep searching but You do not come to me.
In no place of pilgrimage,
no meadow,
nowhere do I find You.

I swung in the cradle of hopes and desperation
and my mind was lifted unto an unknown world.

I attained nothing in discussions of knowledge
and meetings of logic and reasoning.

I was in quest of You
in the sea,
in deep forests,
in flower gardens,
in the sky,
in the wind
and in so many expressions of flowers,
but never did I try to find You within me.
