What happened my dear


What happened my dear
Love departed with associates from us
Who is here to save us
We the animate and the inanimate existed
We the masculine and feminine
Appellations transgressed our natural bounds
And we are completely possessed by lust.

The whole world I see is blinded and agitated
The minds of all are seized with lust
The boughs of trees bent low at the sight of the creepers
Rivers in spate rushed to meet the ocean
Lakes and ponds united in love with one another
Beasts that walk on land and birds traversing the air
Lost all sense of time and became victim of lust.

Even great Yogis and sages and ascetics are
Possessed by lust, look fair sex is everywhere
What type of game is going on in this universe
Women perceived the whole world as full of men
Men beheld as full of women, it is the terror
Nobody could remain self-possessed
O my dear, where is true love and where is truth.

Have peace and have peace of mind, my dear
Save the creatures, here!
O, it is the lovely spring that appeared
Rows of young trees laden with flowers appearing charming
And love overflowed everywhere
Beauty of forest is beyond descriptions
A cool gentle and fragrant freeze fanned as faithful companion
In lakes rows of lotuses blossomed
Swarms of charming bees hummed on them
Sweet notes are there uttered by swans cuckoos and parrots.

Poem of the Day

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.
