Kanhaa Poem

The  Kanhaa Poem: 1 
By Amita J Sanghavi.
19/8/2022.

Krishna, krishna!

Heading straight

To the Haveli,

We stop at the phoolwala

And his tokri,

Our steps halt

As we bend,

Flowers to the soul,

Bliss lend:

The moment

Of spotting fresh blooms,

Mogra and Prajakta,

Bringing a bright glow

On our face and our heart,

We bend to touch the petals,

And the softness

In the Marigold garlands,

How we love to hold!

And now hurry to visit

Krishna in the temple,

Inhaling incense,

Lotus scented agarbatti

Lighting lamps for real,

Chanting aarti in chorus,

As we drape blooms

Around His neck,

And join our hands,

Overwhelmed

With real Darshan

In our 'ami'-filled eyes,

As our blue Kanhaa

We behold,

The maakhan chor,

And His mesmerising,

Mischievous muskaan

Forever heart-held,

Come let’s celebrate,

The birth of

Our Divine consciousness

On Krishna we focus,

Govind Hari, Gopal Hari,

We chant in chorus,

His feet,

The ultimate Sharan

For us.

Teach your daughter this:

You are empowered 

If your bank account is

surplus and sufficient,

Your house help is

Regular and efficient,

If you are well-trained,

On raising your profit

quotient,

And no one dares to

Stop or question,

Your spending decision.

You are empowered

If you walk to work

Without being taunted

Or made to feel guilty

To not first give birth;

But instead encouraged

To up your own worth,

And decide if you are

Ready to bring

A life on earth.

You are empowered,

If you have your

Own house and

Medical insurance,

Not empty promises,

or false ‘future’

assurance.

You are empowered,

If you are not distracted

To ‘appease’ as

An object of beauty,

Rather raised with

self -defence skills

And busy raising

Your immunity.

You are empowered

If your effort is

Rewarded,

Your results applauded,

But most of all,

Your smile is tear-proof,

You enjoy being

Your truly unique self,

Not pressured to be

A colour, a height,

A certain weight,

That you need

To ‘improve’.

You are not empowered

If you are obsessed,

To be accepted by others,

or

Give yourself up,

Just to be 'approved'.

And may you prosper
In every way.

HAPPY DIWALI TO YOU

Navratri

NAVRATRI FESTIVAL
These festive times
Called Navratri,
The nine days signify,
The many ways,
We symbolise and glorify,
The energy and strengths,
Of the Feminine.

Goddess in her Avatars,
Worshipped for her
Virtues and kindness,
With gulaal and flowers.

We pray earnestly
To this Mother Divine,
May she bless us all,
and protect us all.

We seek her forgiveness,
Her favours and grace,
As we sing and dance,
In her glory and praise,
And celebrate the Divine
On these nights nine.
Amba Mata ki Jai
