Animal Kingdom 25 – Giraffe: Height


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 giraffe.

Giraffe: Height

Giraffe, my giraffe,
Your height longs to play
With God’s Transcendental Height.
God is fond of your psychic cry;
Man is proud of your ambition-sky.
God’s Height you are bound to reach.
Try, you shall succeed; try.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
