The Krishna Leela, a cosmic dance
a game of infatuation and romance
tantalises the beholders.
The world comes to a standstill
portrayed in the miniature scenario.
The Gopikas are bewitched by Krishna.
The churning of curd stops abruptly
while the hands that hold the rope
remains motionless, the eyes seem to fall out.
The Gopikas see him in a corner
face smeared with butter as a toddler.
In a few houses, Krishna walks in as a boy
climbs up the ladder steals butter
and plays with the Gopikas.
A little away he enters as an adult
teases and plays a love game with them
All at the same time Krishna takes the various forms
An implication that he is one and the same,
a child, a boy and an adult. All to make people merry.
Perhaps for a reason known to those who read between.
Creativity is a fruit of passion be it anywhere and anytime.
