(29-06-1976 / Guskara-Burdwan)

Christ and Krishna...

Christ and Krishna
grew their divine charisma
in idyllic, pristine
pastoral ambience
amidst the mute-holiness bovine!

The enshrined forgiveness
was nailed to the oozing godliness!
And the enchanting savior;
the child God and annihilator
set the prototype Machiavellian acumen
with the whirling wheel
on the tip of his Jupiter finger
by cheeky pranks and retributive miracles!

Both were the messengers of love:
Jesus held the Egyptian lotus
but the eighth Avatar of Vishnu
may have preferred the American lotus!
One enhanced the myriad hearts
with oracles or parables or healing touches:
the other bound all the creatures
blowing on the wand like flute;
fashioned the devotional illusion
in the feminine shadow of Radha
his paramour and soul relation!

Christ and Krishna
both are so down-to-earth
and again so mystically quizzical!
