The Place That Matters - Poem by Somanathan Iyer

A snake coiled around
the neck of Lord siva
can speak to the hawk
without any fear
The bull that carries
Lord Siva can
confront the lion
without any fear
A lay man under
the shadow of power
takes on any one
beyond his strength
Matters the place
where you stay
Impose the courage
with nothing to fear

    You are right! The snake around Siva's neck asked the hawk 'How do you do? ' (Report) Reply
