I long for the sun when it rains ; I long for the rains when it shines.
Whether it shines or rains, I long for you, my moon light !
Why did you touch me, if you don’t want to hug me ?
Not to you, not to you, Death.
‘Oh, what a relief my most loving hubby! You are miles and miles away.’
‘What a pity, my most adored honey!
No ‘freight -to-pay’ courier service from here to send my heart, packed in a marble paper, to you’
‘That is OK, my Charm!. Let that non-vibrant product be safe where it is.’
‘The problem my precious gem, is that, it has become vibrant, the moment I left you’
The opposite forces, churned the ocean inside me,
Divine damsels, diamonds, pearls ,
fresh fruits, fragrant flowers,
Everyone jumped into to share and went away with the loots!
Then comes the venom, the ferocious dragon
Of death and disaster,
None present to stop the spread of the avalalanche
Of death and disaster
To explain its ferocity, have I no word.
Like a lightning from the dark, black clouds,
Neelakanta, you dropped in
And in a gulp, swallowed the poison,
I’m still looking for the reason!
The Devas didn’t worry, nor the Yakshas,
Kinnaras, Gandharvas .
One woman, from the hills
Flashed in , pressed your neck
And stopped the movement down
Of the deadly poison!
I worship that Shibhani
Who gave us back our Shiba
A single flower can make a festival,
A single word a poem,
A single glance can create hope
A single woman many lives!
