The Play Of The Swaras.


300px-Indiskt_That-2The breeze plays a tune

could it be the seven swaras

I listen keenly to the notes

the start from the sadjamam

gradually picks up and pauses

as it reaches the middle  kanthara

it blows with a sweep and stays

harping on the panchamam

it blows with a niraval

then slowly gains momentum

past the nishadam in a tune

touches the highest shadjamam

tends to play with a fervour

as it reverberates and resonates

lost myself in the flow

knew not when it subdued

went down in the notes

back to the lowest shadjamam

followed by a silence eternal.
