A Fistful Of Stars: Some Day

Hariharan Balakrishnan's poem expresses a deep longing for meditative simplicity.

Some day
I will learn
How to utter
A single word

Some day
I will hear
One single hum
I hear at times

I have to learn
To intone in tone
A single sound
In soundlessness

To pronounce
The nuance
Of just one sound
Now unknown to me

One day I hope
To learn in life
The meaning
Of a simple sound

Is it Om or is it AUM?
