Krishna’s lost flute

October 26, 2009
tags: ,

The wind was not blowing,
Nor was it raining;
Moonlight reflected in the lake,
and the clear water was smiling.

It was a chosen night,
With trees breathing slowly;
Under the warm feathers,
Young birds slept cozily.

But not a young hermit,
Who tonight was quite awake;
Unsettled with flurry of thoughts,
He searched for a place to meditate.

While strolling he found a flute,
Half buried near the lake;
He felt that it had been there for ages,
Either left on purpose or by mistake;

He picked it up and to clean,
Poured water into it with his hands;
He dried it, blew into it, to
Remove the left over sand.

The flute shook as if woken up,
After a thousand years of sleep;
When brought near the lotus lips,
It let out a whisper so deep.

The silence of night was broken,
By the sweet melodious sound;
The birds woke up, and the
Insects crawled out of the ground;

The wind started blowing,
Music moved along like a feather;
Sleeping young women woke up,
For it was loveliest tune heard ever.

The hermit danced with joy,
The time stopped moving;
Was the queen of all flutes found,
Or was our Krishna dreaming?
