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 cricket.
Cricket, my cricket,
Your longing for world-illumination
In the home of night
Is far beyond the mortal’s feeble admiration.
God’s experience-pride is the connecting link
Between your existence-reality
And His creation’s unfathomed enormity.
Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
