Self is a poem written by Anuj Nair. It is a Picture poem / Photo poem.


Definite to the knowledge of the self, I felt
A crystal of salt myself, melt
In the ocean of the universe, bright,
Thrilling, and beyond words to draft.
O! in it man is but a driblet.

The seed and the tree, as the self
And the Supreme Being itself
In real as part and parcel
Of the one limitless cosmos
Ever revolving in supreme motion.

And the individual selves,
Manifesting from the One, themselves
In form and features diverse
As atoms sparks, spheres of globes
All-in-all, one thing, emerging again all along
