Poetry

Sacred Harmony

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.”
