Savita Tyagi


Vishnu


Vishnu

One
Who creates
And pervades all
The creation by his
Magic

One
Beyond time
Space and matter
Yet he is all
That

Vishnu Sahastranaam

Defining
Vishnu with
Thousand names Who
Absolutely can not be
Defined

Quest
To know
One with thousand
Names who can't be
Known

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Inspiration for these simple five liners (or Cinquain if these lines can be called that) comes from my readings of Vishnu Sahastranaam an ancient lyrical Sanskrit poetry of describing Vishnu (Supreme being) with thousand names.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
