Indira Renganathan


A Day With The Lord


Wake up o'Lord, it's winter's vernal shine
Dawning to be consecrated with mercy Thine
Whilst yet a darkling sky's in full moon shine
In tardy treads it's pinking too fine
As Thou asterism Arudhra is on to sign
Conjuring melodies of cooing birds pine
Invoked Margazhi-matins intensify to combine
Intending for anointed ablutions aromatic divine
Wake up o'Lord, wake up

Then it means to be sanguine more
Sacred bathing mounds in variety to pour
Shiva is fresh and feasted to score
Follow now His jaunt of cosmic chore
Prime at Dharukavan blissful, He dances to roar
Surrender the rishis, their nescience to implore
Repeats His cosmic dance, Pathanjali to adore
On Thai-Poosam for Vyagrapada once more
Illimitable expeditions has He all more

Vital, vigorous, fervent He's the cosmic force
Blest or blazed all from His source
Fiery that He seeks more a bathing course
Cool on Maasi- morn of a chathurdasi-repose
Ere full moon amid sacred ablutions He glows
Freshened Lord doesn't let us doze
Awakens the light in wide awake those
On a Maasi-night whole His blessing flows
Thence the trumpet of His marriage-grandeur blows

Watch the merry Lord ecstatic, samsaric
Performing to the core of our blood rhythmic
Reddened to be Ratnasabapathy dynamic
Refreshed of yet more ablution fantastic
On Thiruvonam in Chithirai bombastic
Noon -bathing rhapsodic naps to be melodic
That the Lord emerges to be characteristic
On Uthiram in Aani all majestic
Blessing us whole in evening symbolic

Now time for the slumber-surrender-darkness
Nescient night whilst seeking refuge vivacious
The Lord forbids its ignorance gracious
Bathed anew, aglow with effulgence
On Chaturdasi in Aavani propitious
Sequel- Poornima all with her godliness
While leering fledging cupid-arrows
Rapturous Lord resorts to further ambrosial ablutions
On a Chaturdasi in Purattasi nighttime magnificence
Shiva is all content with the whole cosmic force
Unto Him retires our woes and wishes
Unto Him Poornima wanes, waxes, wanes

    How could I ever repay you? For your beauty.
    How could I ever repay you? For all the love that you shown to others.
    How could I ever repay you? For every tear you've dried from a child face.
    How could I ever repay you my sweet sister?
    I'm just a meek man, so the only way I could repay you
    is to thank the LORD for the beauty He made when he made YOU.
    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
    HUMBLE BY YOU,

    a treasure from treasures, i feel mean i'm so economical with words
    but in my heart i aim to at the treasure of meaning that is sublime in its truth.
    thanks for your encouragement even though it was a very western poem.

    A really good poem about the Lord. It has the feel of classic epic poetry. Have you read much of the Upanishads?

    Please have a look at 'Love Song of a Korean Woman'. (Report) Reply

    your poems wear a divine glow
    to a poor man , easily they show
    a path that he needs to follow
    may you never run short
    of words, phrases and verse
    may never run dry the well of
    ur poetic universe.......

    I am delighted with your poems, hope gos gives me the wisdom to grasp their meanings fully well (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
