The Gopi: Staring at the Rain

Dearest Krishna,
Oh! The thunderbolt i hear-
It fills me with fear!
But oh! not the sound of it,
But the seperation it brings with it!

The clouds are dark,
Their resemblance to You quite stark:
But oh! They send down torrents of rain:
That bring with them seperation's pain!

The raindrops kiss the grass,
For a scenery, they make a beautiful pass:
But oh! i end up kissing the door,
For i can walk out no more!

Your house is yonder,
To there, the mind does wander;
But oh! the pained heart fearfully wonders:
Are my chances of seeing You gone asunder??

The rain comes, to satisfy the earth's thirst,
But oh! what of the thirst i nurse!!!
The mind derides its selfishness-
But oh! To see Your form so blemishless!

In this little heart, there is clamour:
O Monarch of my Mind! all my hopes stammer:
Surrendered unto You, forever:
Do hear my prayer!

Your beautiful smile always gladdening-
Now, thinking of it, is maddening!
Your sea-like eyes of endless depth!
Thinking of them, now i fret!!

The raindrops came splashing
Perhaps even they were for You searching!
Please consider: i am, for one glance, yearning!
Kindly grant me that, all hurdles notwithstanding.

Let the rains die down,
Let there be no other hurdles now!
O dearest lover! Let me run to You:
And the lessons of love, learn anew!!

  2. Really loved reading this. Again, the thirst and the yearning for Krishna is the greatest wealth one can ever have. I can only dream of having the faintest taste of this experience.

    Adiyen,

    You are right...when Perumal is to us 'everything', He takes care of 'everything' that could ever bother us (including material wealth).

  7. ILWK, that was wonderful!

    "In this little heart, there is clamour:
    O Monarch of my Mind! all my hopes stammer:
    Surrendered unto You, forever:
    Do hear my prayer!"

    That was my favorite part!
    It was very well written. I could feel every emotion that you described!
