krishna was married but loved his consort with a passion;
his love for her was so much more than the current fashion.
lovely radha was the divine lord’s supreme beloved;
she loved him with a love that all the others coveted!
krishna had many beautiful women called the gopis;
the godman is a divine rogue who courts his devotees!
his magic flute calls the rustic lover with god’s music;
the cowherds are not beguiled by the purely bucolic.
we have denied that eden was ever this wonderful,
and claim feminine nature degrades the spiritual!
the sun rises in the east but slumbers in the west;
dawn is like a virgin seduced by the day’s long quest.
darvish thinks of mira who married krishna as a doll;
she became a dancer and singer to one all in all!
