The sky gently opens up
a patient ocean – mighty and silent
The music takes over its unending length, width and depth
echoing and making the powerful presence felt
That is what I see when He sings.
Through the passage of melodious time
there is a stubborn stirring of the heavy clouds
and of the water columns below
Oh yes they love their sea-beds alright
But now they want to take on the sky
That is what I feel when He sings.
The carnival is now at its peak
For the waves rise high above, high above
Attempting to latch on to the divine air
The mighty blue ocean splashed around, a restive force
The ocean is churned, the sky beholds
The light of the steadiest rhapsody!
And soon it is, as it was, a truly beautiful world.
Silent and at Peace again.
With Almighty present within us all.
That is what I believe when He sings.
A tribute to Pandit Bhimsen Joshi. You are divine, sir.
