Krishna....

Yesterday I was listening to Carnatic Chills by the brothers Ganesh and Kumaresh. Their first composition made me want to dance. And I danced to it and it was after a long time that I finally danced. The next music in the cd was Fire and Water. I felt so broken when I listened to it. I closed my eyes and was listening to the song. I suddenly had this urge to write something.

While I was listening to the music, words just flowed into the paper. I wrote about Radha waiting for her Krishna in Vrindavan.Their love story has been told by many and there is none who has loved like them.
But before I put the poem up I must also thank a very wonderful person G S Khetanchi who allowed me to use his picture Mayur Pankh for this poem. His depiction of Radha is exactly like how I saw her in my mind. Thank you so much Sir.


Krishna....



Oh Krishna, Where are you,my lord?
Are you sneaking up behind the bushes-
Waiting for a chance to startle me?
Or are you still in Madhura-
Mesmerizing the people with your antics?

Oh Krishna,my heart yearns for you,
My body pines for your arms around it,
My eyes desire to be lost in the depth of yours,
My ears ache to listen to your flute,
My tongue craves for the taste of your sweat.

Oh Krishna ,have you forgotten,
I 'm here in our Vrindavan awaiting your arrival?
Till then I need neither food nor water.
Your memories would keep me alive.
Need no life my Lord, unless that life is with you.

Oh Krishna, its for you I search everywhere
In butterflies,bees,flowers,fruits,trees;
In animals, birds, earth and sky; where are you my love?
I promise you I will remain yours forever,
For I know nothing else, other than your love.

A very poignant poem, dear. You paint an emotive picture with simple words.

This is a beautiful chain of words full of love. But i would have been even happier if this poem was written from Krishna's prespective [Parting from his beloved radha ]. I guess no one has plotted the emotions of krishna in detail :)

Hearing your voice Radha....krishna has decided to leave Mathura...come to you just for you!

Good one :)

Description of Love at its best...coming from deep inside your heart. Its speaks of love in volumes but yes the words are so few....that is exactly what a poem should be about. Creating a huge visual space with few lines is the sign of a Great poet.

Amazing!!!I could sense it as I am also deeply in love with Krishna.
Seriously, I had goosebumps as I was listening to the song and reading your poem.

The art is fab...exquisite...lack proper word. Its not enuf to describe it. Its so feminine and beautiful.

Thanks for sharing it with us.Love it.

I am happy to have met you.

Happy day, pal!
