RASA DANCE

Monday, October 30th, 2023

Pune, India



In honour of the recent full moon, Sharad purnima, I submit this poem:



RASA DANCE



Under the night sky of scarlet red

And no-breeze trees above the head

Was the tingling sweet sound

Of ankle bells upon the ground


It was the Sharad season

When mind does not reason

But fades into a trance feel

Nothing short of romance appeal


The moon was not just a slit

But full, whole, a perfect fit

Beneath that glow was a dance

Moreso a fine, divine dalliance


One and eight serious stepping souls

Moved in synchronistic folds

The circle – an endless curve

Was uninterrupted with soothing nerve


At the centre – a stunning male

With village girls in saree veils

All moving in rhythmic stride

Demonstrated a charming pride


There's an innocence to this all

A pureness that followed a flute's call

A dance beyond the mundane

In evening calm where vice did wane


– By Bhaktimarga Swami





MAY THE SOURCE BE WITH YOU!
