No Harbor



Our mind and so we, keep running to fulfill the desires restlessly or sometimes we have to run unwillingly. Fulfillment of the desire may give the joy for some time but not the eternal bliss. We feel thirsty and tired inside till the moment we realize, ‘What We Are’, according to Brahmavakya ‘Aham Brahmasmi’, I am not different from the supreme power, or ‘Shivoham’, I am the complete bliss, Shiva.

Once we realize, ‘What We Are’, we don’t run but work naturally with the bliss, fulfill the duties with perfection but without attachment, and this is the eternal Harbor.



This haiku is the state of mind of a Sadhak (person moving on the spiritual path) or Mumukshu  (Desperate for the Moksha – The salvation). 

Thirsty word reflects all these feelings, even in the ocean we can't have a drop of water to quench our thirst.



tired, thirsty swimming
in life's ocean; no harbor
no rest and no shore

Written For Haiku Heights for the prompt Harbor.
