Peace and joy

I soared

I flew,

I touched the skies.

I spread my hands

and welcomed you in

I opened my heart

and made you sit.

I sit in peace

I revel in joy

Your name echoes throughout

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna……….

We had wonderful Sankirtan in temple yesterday.  At the beginning I sat grudgingly for I was in the mood to hear some lecture and was not ready for sankirtan. But 10 minutes into the program and I felt so light and so peaceful. If just the name of the Almighty brings so much joy; I cannot even fathom what his actual presence might bring.

The ‘look’

I caught a glimpse as I turned,

I retraced my steps,

I saw,

and then I stared.

The beauty,

The twinkle in the eyes;

The mischief;

All held me.

I stood there,

transfixed,

The world moved,

Around me.

I stood,

Nothing shook me,

Nothing touched me,

As I gazed.

Your beauty;

arrested me,

Your gaze;

Beckoned me.

And I have been

Mesmerized ever since.

This post is for posterity sake. I hope I will live enough to be able to tell this story to my grandchild/ren

——————————————————————————–

Krishna is tired and so he rests under a tree in the forest. Soon he falls asleep. Radha is passing by and she feels happy to see her Krishna. And so she starts to sing and dance. One of Krishna’s cows hears her and comes to see her. She likes her act and so she sits down to watch her.

In some time Krishna wakes up and sees Radha. Both of them begin to sing and dance.

Then Krishna sees the cow and asks her to go graze some grass. The cow refuses. Krishna pushes the cow, but she does not move. Then Krishna puts a rubber band(??) on her neck and pulls. The cow falls down unconscious.

Then Krishna carries her and makes her sleep on her bed. Because Krishna is Gopala, the cowherd boy; the well-wisher of the cows.

No people, this is not my story. It is the creation of my five-year old, written here for records. 😀
