Song Eternal

I tried to depict the eternal nature of word as it reverberates and transcends from age to age.

Lines 13-20 refer to Mahabharatha war where Arjuna was demystified by Lord Krishna.

Lines 21-24 refer to the Cosmic dance of Shiva.

"I" am the eternal soul in this poem. 'Turbulent dark night' here means the death that is considered so dreadful.

There is the eternal music passing from an embryo to the Eternity.

There is a dawn, twilight and dawn again in this poem.

Song Eternal


Embryonated,
through cellular evolutions
from unknown galaxies
of globular gyrations,


when I stir
from an insensible state of an infant
labored out
to the world lulled otherwordly,


the motherly lifenote struck
on my maieutic eardrums
blossoms
waking voices


from wailings of mystical mediums,
improvises Vedic verses
wafted over warfaring standards,
entrancing even the turbulent dark night


caught in nets of black illusions,
and renders
the breathless broken reeds
into lilting flutes;


And the tunefeet
played on my soulstrings
presume the cosmic feet
dancing on the space-time horizons,
amid aubades,
illumined in epochal effusions
and resonate revived
flowing full
in melodies eternal.
