Shiva Tandava

That of Shiva,
his dance
cosmic as seen

Places one foot on the ground
the other balances in the air
turns and twists
an impressive movement.

He revolves
the earth rotates
can hear a thunder.
Delirious it appears.

The snake around the neck
dances to the tune.
The Ganges from his head
pours in cadence.

The moon shines from his matted hair
a silvery reflection dangles
on the Ganges as it flows,
ebullient and divine.

The vigorous dance
rocks. Denotes creation,
preservation, destruction,
illusion and emancipation.
