This poem was written by my dear granddaughter, Kairava. She sings kirtan each year with her father, sister and brother at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat in the Bahamas. Kairava wrote this sweet poem two years ago, while at the Ashram, when she was 11 years old.
Happy Birthday Kairava!

The lights feel warm on my face
Our voices vibrate in harmony
My sister looks at me cueuing me to sing
As I pour my heart out into the melody,
My eyes gently close letting me be aware
Of the sacred sounds that will emanate from my lips
The sounds of the instruments and voices together
All blending so sweetly like a prayer to the lord as we sing
“Hey Krishna! Hey Yadava! Hey Sachet! Govinda, Damordara, Madhaveti.”
