India My India – Haiku


mera desh, mera vaatan

its essence remains in my heart

though we have long since been apart

derelict Mandir

divine essence lingers

serene beauty

lonely riverbank

Krishna plays flute

ethereal music

kamal naayan

heart strings pull

Radha blushes

vigour and valour

Ram raises his bowstring

aimed glory

worshipful devotees

mandir, mosque, gurdwara

India my India

eyes raised

every soul seeks blessing

many empty bowls

sweet panacea

ambrosia rains down

prayer answered

strong breeze
young plant bows
supple youth

strength beauty wisdom

Satyam Shivam Sundaram

divine truth
