the Gods

the Gods Image 4

Have the Gods brought

You on earth?

Were the Gods present while

You took birth?

Are the Gods still there and

You are around them?

Had the Gods planned

You what are?

I am in Love

with you

In return

You have been compassionate

in love with Me

Please wait, I am bit busy

Trying to find

the Gods

I am scared

the Gods

may take you away from Me

I am trying to send

the Gods

Make them intoxicated

4x5 originalinto their own divinity to

leave us both alone

in a place where

no time no ageing

For I want You

not to part with Me

We would escape from

the Gods

Enduring stopped

in everlasting immortality like

 the Gods

Me and You  

Be together in eternity as

the Gods

Eventually the current week in India is About the ‘HOLI’ – the festival of   Colours, which is connected to the Gods of Love KAMA and RATI

The whole story is very fascinating and the fervour and celebration of this festival reaches to its peak in the five days from the Full Moon called ‘Holi Hunnime’ or ‘Holi Ki Purnima’  

KAMA, the GOD of LOVE

    Awesome words so brilliantly composed Shiva and true Holi is a festival of love and colors of passion and beauty which u have narratively fashioned so well.

      Thanks Ben for your valued comment.
      These lines are a sort of poetic thoughts one would want to express.

      Ben! You are absolutely right in what you are telling that everything is one. God is everywhere around us you say, I say God is within of us also. It is for us to know about it. It comes by spiritual Sadhana, Shravana, Satsang, Scriptural Readings and so on. People who know about Self Realization can only talk like how you have expressed. I hope you have definitely done some Sadhana on those lines and I am very happy having to met You.
      Let our discussions be On.

          Oh Brigid that is full north, almost nearing 2000 kms away from Me. Tell me if you want any help or information.
          By the way Brigid, how did you find the lines of this Post. I am wondering everyone is talking about the images of Holi I have inserted.

      I could not know what did you feel about my lines. I normally write my lines and then search for the suitable images and videos, this being the week for Holi it was appropriate to insert those images and links. If you could throw light upon that I am blessed. Thank You

        The lines are very different to what I would write but that is the beauty of our poetry being so individual! Your images are classical beauties, they please the eye while your words intrigue. But then I don’t know much about poetry, just totally enjoy writing it.

    meeting your soulmate and then parting is painful….even though the love is eternal separations are always painful… look at Radha krishna…an i bet stealing a little time from Gods and wishing the time stood still is something all lovers have experienced… except that it doesn’t and we are left with sweet memories to last us till we meet again and faith a trust in each other to last through the separation. knowing that the other lives and exists only for us. and no amount of temptation can steal his/her affection away…
    your these lines…

      Ranjini I do not know why but some how it came to me to write this pertaining to the Gods and Love.
      It was ready and before I could publish I usually see to inserting some things relevant and suitable.
      It so happened that I got all the images and eventually it was Holi. So the pictures.
      Hope you are enjoying Holi.
      You know the words, you know life, you know love , so you know what and how to express.
      You more know why and what.
      Thanks Ranju

          I imagined it as well that you are immersed in all the colours.
          For that, you do lot of Nadi Shodana Pranayama it helps a lot. Anu Loma Viloma Pranayama anytime and anywhere will give best results. Try and see. Tell me the aftermath.

      Actually there goes a lot of research on finding them and it does takes my time and I enjoy doing it, in the process I gain lot of knowledge and insight.

      Thanks for the Holi wishes it is not belated as we are having the color day today. In Karnataka it is played for five days and each place has it’s day fixed since long.
      In that case you have missed many of my posts. Refer my previous ones when you have time. I only feel some good friends should visit and read them. I do not go on telling this to all. I hope you understand.
      By the way please mention me the favorite posts of yours , I have missed reading yours, I want to read them. Yours are something special always.

    Well wasn’t little Ms. Aphrodite a jealous and vain thing!! And not very nice, I might add. I never had that opinion of her until now, reading about Eros & Psyche! I love that you are always celebrating something and the colorful traditions you have. Happy Celebration!! Your poem most definitely captures the essence of Eros & Psyche….well done Shiva!! Just be sure not to become more beautiful than Aphrodite!! 😉
