Kartik Sonnet #2

As the month of Kartik continues, here is another beautiful Kartik sonnet by Ananda Vrindavan Devi Dasi.


Of lamps and lights this month is all too good

It helps an eager traveler on their way

Lean in, it calls, to those who think they could

Take shelter with a song and verse to pray

The daring know to practice what we preach

Our lives we need to make a better change

To turn within all that we love to teach

And gain a sense of Krishna within range

This kartik month opens the curtains wide

Upon the scene in Vraja’s village true

It shares a glimpse of what the Lord can’t hide

The power of love and what such love can do

    Lean in to hold the chance to listen well

    And hear the stories Vrindavan has to tell
