Animal Kingdom 3 – Bear: Vengefulness

bear

Sri Chinmoy wrote a fascinating little compendium on the spiritual meaning of animals which was published by Agni Press in 1973. Today’s poem features the bear.

Bear: Vengefulness

Bear, my bear,
Your sense of vengefulness
Far surpasses human might;
Yet unconsciously
You cry for the human height.
Nothing satisfies you for long;
Not even satisfaction-day.
Inseparable your proud wisdom
And wild ignorance-clay.

Bat: Peculiarity

Bat, my bat,
With your strange peculiarity-light you see at night,
And we see during the day.
Therefore you and men are equal.
Let us try to increase our capacities.
You try to see during the day
And we during the night.
God is merciful. Let us pray;
He will grant us His deathless Ray.

Ant: Glory

Ant, my ant,
In you my heart beholds
The glory of the Supreme.
Tiniest in size, you house the dream
Of the Omnipotent.
To me you are extremely important,
Because you represent
One extremity of God,
His message of smallness;
In another word, His greatness.
