Poem: The Dead Sea

Featured in this week’s Spot is Sadhguru’s poem The Dead Sea.

The Dead Sea

A sea that you cannot even drown in
It takes life even to take life
Only in constant transaction
Even the possibility of cosmic action

The sea that got walled in
Cannot host even a wandering jinn

To soak in this mineral soup
Is like being in the motherly sap
The salty sap of the earth
Life nourishing but named Death
