Thy Will Shall Prevail

Vrindavan called, notes on the flute

Benares beckoned, a faint lilt through chaotic noise

Rishikesh and Kedarnath, their throbbing damru, a constant echo

Anticipation aroused, the heartbeat surged, the open eyes dreamt

Visualising the experience ‘ere it happened

When the time came, a pandemic came calling

Purging lives, as it did my dreams

Now I let faith intercede, urging fate to recede

Patience, persistence, penitence, penance await reward

  • the lead image above the header is that of Nandi, the bull, Shiva’s mount. Its significance lies in that it waits ever-so-silently for Shiva to finish His meditation. Legend also says that a devotee has to whisper their wish in its ears for the Lord to listen… well, I just have.
