This blog is dedicated to my dearest Krishna...mostly poetry, sometimes through the words of a Gopi, and sometimes, just my own musings...

It is dusk (this winter)
When the sun 'stonished at my Lord's splendour
Hides himself in night's shelter.

Where are You?

Where are You, my sweet Lord?
Did i lose You somewhere in those beautiful dreams...
Or, somewhere else in life's complicated realms?
Did You hide Yourself when i got so used to Your intoxication...
And, along with You, steal my poor imagination?

Where are You, dear Lord?
Did You think i will be fine on my own?
Is that why You turned this heart to stone..
But, now that i do shamefully atone-
Would You accept if i said i want You alone??

Where are You, my Krishna?
You steer me through the path of life,
Every moment, i feel Your guidance by the side;
And yet, this heart is in great strife-
For it longs for its lover's sight!

Will You come back, my Lord?
Though this slave be undeserving,
Though, in service, i have been slacking,
Though i have committed  a disservice horrifying,
Would You take me back and fill this life with meaning?

This slave surrendered unto You,
Beseeches a chance anew-
All the errors and apologies in lieu,
Please accept a heart that pines for You!

Food for thought

"Take up the hint : no more can i say
He is in every way a noble friend,
worthy of your adoration and dearer
to you than your life..."

I read these beautiful lines right now here. 
They had such a phenomenal effect on me. They are an excerpt from Sri Thulsidas' letter to Mirabai when she wrote to him, complaining about her non-cooperative in-laws.

"Who knows? Krishna has His own plans for me and all I need to do is surrender to His will!"

I came across these lines on a blog where I am a regular reader.

Just a couple of lines that inspired me.
And a couple of pictures that captivated me.
Hope you enjoy it! :D
