A Poem for Krishna

A Poem for Krishna
on the occasion of His Divine Appearance, Sri Krishna Janmastami
August 24th, 2008

Your eyes
anoint my eyes
with tears of recognition

Your eyes
illuminate my horizon
a dawn in a darkened world

Your eyes
suffuse my soul
in stillness

don't close Your eyes
allow me to gaze into them
for an eon

I am a beggar
I possess nothing in this world
but this desire
to rush to the temple
to see
Your eyes

Hi, Bakthi latha. You have a very wonderful blog. Excellent poem for Krishna. Leave alone closing, I am sure he is not winking after 24th Aug 2008.:)

I too by his grace have written a poem, not about him :(, but about his flute. Please read it when you have time.

Truly, life-giving nectar drippes from Krishna's lotus eyes which always look peaceful and pleasing. What a sweet meditation!

To write is to dare the soul. So write.
