I Get A Chill

Sitting in quietude
on the bank of the stream

that gurgles past our home,

I get an excruciating chill

when a strange thought rocks me:

a Brindavan without Radha and Krishna
 

Unseen, the Kadamb flowers to wither,

an ocean of Yashoda’s love to dry up,

tons of milk and curd to turn sour,

soft yearning hearts of cow-maids turn to stone

 

In great fear I get a strange vision-

a sky without a sun, a moon and stars,

a Yamuna without  the ripples of love,

meadows without green grass and cattle

 

A canvas without a painter and his brush,

a sky without birds, clouds and rainbows,

sleep and slumber free of fantasies and dreams –

without love and romance a life-long death

 

Thoughts such as these I get scared of,

I beseech Radha and Krishna in embrace to show up!!

Comment Thank you, Nathmal ji. Yes, Radha-Krishna form the source of all love and joys in this creation.
