Treasure Island

Indira Renganathan

Devi Gomathi

On this day of thine wishful celebration
Blest with Sankara Narayana-dharshan
In submission present mine petition
Over an unfulfilled ambition
Well aware of a revelation
That myth has accounted in summation
Sons of Shiva, Hari while on a quarrelling stimulation
Answered HariHara in oneness presentation
Proximate longing thine too for a dharshan
Penanced thence on a ten-days -continuation
Unpleasant for the celestials thine separation
To 'Punnaivanam' tailed all as cows by conversion
For thy name was it an eventful causation
Cowherdess 'Go'mathi so with cows' association
All in blessed bliss to vision
A verity of Sankaranarayana's rendition
Well aware of again a revelation
That myth has accounted in summation
Coiling around a Shivling a serpent.. that situation
By oracle erected king Ukrapandi thine abode for salvation
Then that mud of the snake-mound formation
Senative, curative is the lore's narration
Then in Nagasunai a dip of holy ablution
Praying to thine chakra with devotion..
Umpteen efforts, umpteen visits
Umpteen pleas, umpteen vows
All but one done blessed in karmic whirls
That undone is thine sparkling presence
In closure my awaiting sight pleads please
By thy holy heart to mine inly vision please

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
