Animal Kingdom 43 – Skunk: Darkness


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 skunk.

Skunk: Darkness

Skunk, my skunk,
You spread darkness all around.
Save God’s Compassion-flood,
Nothing is found
In your ignoble blood.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
