For Pithukuli Murugadas (1920- 2015) - Poem by Raj Arumugam

For Pithukuli Murugadas (1920- 2015)

you sang
as Sakti and Siva
danced in you;
and so the goddess of wisdom
Saraswati was always in your words

you chanted
all names of the Divine
pure, all-embracing
and radiant with all-inclusive love
that awaits all hearts
that are open, that will receive
