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.)
