The poems published in this collection are ful of gratitudes and love, love to every one and all of us. In a poem titled 'Lending Labour' Osho says- ' Love is life's spirit / love is lamp which lit / Our onus pale room / Born all resplendor light / under grace, underpeace / It's time for Divine's room / who weave our soul bright. / Admire our Aur, Wafting breez.'
