Krishna

BABY KRISHNA

source unknown

With this poem Krishna I started blogging. Here it is:

 

This flute player

Has been creating

Enchanting notes for us.

Yet we have no ears for Him.

His music flows on.

It’s not that no one

Had ever heard Him.

O little Butter Thief

Have pity on us

Will You?

 

The new (edited) poem:

 

Not air but love

vibrates when the dark

boy touches his flute.

Yet there’s no taker

of his love.

Eons pass on.

 

Little butter thief

plays on

alone

in His solitary

abode.

 

Awaits.

Note: 

Krishna (/ˈkrɪʃnə/Sanskrit: कृष्ण, Kṛṣṇa in IAST, pronounced [ˈkr̩ʂɳə] (  listen)) is a major Hindu deity worshiped in a variety of different perspectives. Krishna is often described and portrayed as an infant eating (stealing) butter, a young boy playing a flute as in the Bhagavata Purana,[3] a young man along with Radha, a young man surrounded by beautiful women or as an elder giving direction and guidance as in the Bhagavad Gita. They portray him in various perspectives: a god-child, a prankster, a model lover, a divine hero, and the Supreme Being. Worship of the deity Krishna, either in the form of deity Krishna or in the form of VasudevaBala Krishna or Gopala can be traced to as early as the 4th century BC Wikipedia
