Clouds Of Love

Confessions of Krishna - 10

Oh golden twilight clouds,
Go far with the message in my songs
To where my beloved weeps for me
Wipe her tears and tell her she is mine

Let her know how sad I feel
In this world so unreal
In this suffocating silence
Left by her long absence

Carry the vapors of tears
From my eyes as your clouds of blue
Stay above her, high in the sky
Inundate her, with droplets of my sorrow

Let the thunders in my heart
Shiver all the Ashta-Dikpalas
With the reverberations of the mantra
‘Krishna loves Radha'

Let the lightning in my heart
Spread around the horizon
All the sparks of love I kept undisturbed
For the queen of my heart

Take her up in the whirlwinds of my mind
And carry her in the mighty winds
Take her in your stormy hands
Place her in my arms which crave for her touch

(This is an imaginary poem written as narrated by God Krishna to his childhood love Radha, to show how sublime and deep his love was.)

Ashta-Dikpalas- Gods ruling the eight sides. They are 1)East - Lord Indra 2)West - Varuna 3)North - Lord Kubera 4)South - Yama 5)South East - Lord Agni 6)Southwest - Niruthi 7)Northwest - Vayu 8)Northeast - Isana.

Mantra - is a sound, syllable, word, or group of words that are considered capable of 'creating transformation." Their use and type varies according to the school and philosophy associated with the mantra.

‘Krishna loves Radha' - With Krishna, Radha is acknowledged as the Supreme Goddess, for it is said that she controls Krishna with Her love. It is believed that Krishna enchants the world, but Radha enchants even Him. Therefore She is the supreme goddess of all.

Mera paigham muhabbat hay Jahan tak pahunche (My message is love Where ever it can raech....................Jigar Muradabadi) Besides liking this wonderful poem, I also liked the informative poet's note............10
Long days after hear it's resounding the Sanskrit legendary poet MAHAKAVI Kalidash's voice once again from 'KUMARSAMVABAM Kabbya. Imagery and expression perhaps resounding nearest to that classical poetic essence. May it be poet inspired by Indian classical treasure! There in 'Kumarsamvabam', Jakshya, the hero in confinement, sending his messages imagining cloud as his carrier from the top of Ramgiri hills, for his beloved Kanta who stayed long...long away from him. Just it echoes while reading this very poem. In another sense poet has tried much to illustrate Krishna-Radha relation from Baisnav philosophy by rhyme. Well it works. Thank you.
