(A painting by Sandhya)
The gentleness of blessing hands
Sanctity of Mother’s feet
Advent of the Dawn Goddess
Blossoming shape of Krishna’s eyes
Flowering of a smiling face
Hold within them a secret,
One that is at the heart of a Lotus flower.
Quivering at the touch of sunshine,
Silken petals unfurl one by one.
Seated serenely as in a deep meditation,
The flowers are living sages in trance.
Beautiful symbols are they, of heavenly beauty,
Secretly decorating the earth with sweet ecstasy.
