Animal Kingdom 46 – Sparrow: Secrecy


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 black sparrow.

Sparrow: Secrecy

Sparrow, my sparrow,
You embody future’s high secrecy.
You reveal its wealth
With your psychic delicacy.
Your tiny body and your spanless
Foreseeing eye
Create in man bold contradiction
Of fascination-sky.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
