Krishna Is Love

July 17, 2010 at 4:41 pm 6 comments

This is based on the vision of Krishna I mentioned quite a while ago. I’ve been trying to condense it into a poem ever since. I also reference part of Krishna’s story: Krishna, according to legend, grew up with cow herders and all of the women, married or not, fell in love with him when he became a man. They would pine for him and at one point he joined all of them in the woods, appearing to each woman, who each thought she had his “undivided attention.” He danced with them in a traditional circular dance before they got down to making love. That’s what the beginning and ending lines are referring to. The section in italics is a quote from a translation of the Mahabarata.

Krishna Vision

Like one of Krishna’s cowgirls, I wait

upon his pleasure. When he joins me,

my sapphire lord clasps me in ecstatic embrace,

and the dross falls from my eyes.

I see how I mirror his

rainbow brilliant,

crystal clear,

mountain mighty perfection –

inseparable, vision and beholder.

The universe, a prism,

refracts his serene loveliness in innumerable ways.

Everywhere are his hands and legs,

his eyes and faces.

He looks on me with lotus eyes of compassion

from behind the masks of insects,

birds, beasts, family, friends, lovers,

strangers and even enemies.

He blooms from the center of each glowing star

and spiraling galaxy. All that is,

was, or shall be echoes his grace,

his joy, his peace.

Grasped in his all-embracing arms,

I follow him through the endless dance.
