Poem for Lord Krishna by Manisha Manhas

It is the first real day of spring

As the petals of my eyes have

Removed themselves from the pillow 

To witness outside the window

The laughter of oleander bushes,

creating a  riot in air

Just as Your mischievous smile 

 riots inside me

Crashing into my heart’s screen to 

Obliterate all that has been

To ‘unwatch’ all that is unreal and

To watch for all that is real and deep blue

 For all that is so true

 For all that is just You.
