Searching For Your Abode…

Searching for your Abode…

(Inspired by the love and devotion of princess Mirabai to Lord Krishna)searching for your abode

SEARCHING FOR YOUR ABODE………

 

I have traversed the tumultuous waves of illusions

to reach this narrow,demarking line,

where i see rolling valleys of life on one side

and the silent abyss of death on the other,

as my befuddled mind desperately tries to fathom

the path i should take to reach your abode.

 

Without you, all seasons have lost their brilliance

and time no longer boasts its significance,

as each nebulous dawn keeps wilfully mirroring 

the ebony darkness of forlorn nights,

where alluring dreams ultimately fade into nothingness

reflecting the stark reality in which i reside.

 

Without you, this body is just a rotting prison

where my writhing soul is sentenced to life,

my youth so stripped of all worldly desires

wholly acknowledges that you are my only respite,

while the stream of tears springing from our separation ‘s ache

 remains as the only cue that i am still alive.

 

Just as a garden’s wilted bloom keeps longing

for the warm embrace of celestial moon,

i, an ordinary mortal, dwelling on this earth

dare to pine for you, the supreme divine,

and when i stand at this pinnacle of love and devotion

i sense that my prayers would be answered very soon.

 

Till then, i will roam the deserted streets of life

singing loudly the hymns of your praise,

i will dance gaily as if i am hearing

the enchanting notes of your flute,

and build an ornate temple for you in my heart

where i will place myself as the pious offering.

    A very romantic rendering Ahjana, with some wonderful phrasing in a smooth flowing verse. Very much enjoyed. One minor grammatical error: both uses of the word keep should be ‘keeps’. If the preceding noun is singular it is keeps, if plural, keep. Lovely work dear poet. Take care.

    And such a powerful love they had. I love this one my friend. The anguish of waiting for love, the devotion to stay the course. Excellent work my dear friend.
