The slothful

by Civivakkiyar

English version by Kamil V. Zvelebil
Original Language Tamil

The slothful
     sluggards
     say: He is far, far, far
     away!
But the Supreme It
is spread everywhere
on Earth and in Heavens.
O you poor dumb ones,
running
stunned and suffering
through towns and fields and forests
in Search!
He is right there
within you!
Stand still
and feel Him,
feel!

-- from The Poets of the Powers: Freedom, Magic, and Renewal, Translated by Kamil V. Zvelebil
