Yorkville, The Annex/Toronto

Full Cup Day


Today was the birth anniversary of one of our great saints – Bhaktivinode Thakur. And so, as a poem:

Twas a half day fast

Birthday of Bhaktivinode

Bit of biography read

Ashram-ites in a good mode


Like me, you could say

It was Mike on the phone

He walked the whole country

Did it all alone


Had a Gita Zoom class

Humility was the theme

A human obligation

To get the soul clean


For a retreat in the US

We set on drama rehearsal

Practice and prepare

Hope no border reversal


At sundown came the moon

Walked under a waxing one

On the street called Bloor

Met a guy called Don


It was getting real late

An early rise tomorrow

Insomnia got me in a state

Triggered by some sorrow


Twas all about people stuff

The birthday made it up

Heard the news the queen passed

My day was a full cup
