the fallen gandharva


how i wish i could sing
a new ode to joy for Thee
but i left my rich voice
somewhere

how i wish i composed
the full moon sonata for Thee
but i lost my clearest
vision

all i have is explicit belief
all i'm able is chanting Thy Name
in the deep of my fidgety
heart

as Thou seest i'm nothing at all
but Thy servant who fell down here
from the planet of singing
gandharvas*

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In Hinduism, the gandharvas are male nature spirits, husbands of the Apsaras. They have superb musical skills. They guarded the Soma and made beautiful music for the demigods in their palaces. A gandharva means a singer in the court of Gods. In Hindu theology, gandharvas act as messengers between the gods and humans. (From Wikipedia)
