ALAIVANI

Submitted by Padmini Natarajan

 

Waves, alai
That rise
From the vast
Expanse of ocean
Part of it
Yet struggling
To establish
Its own
Power
Surges with
Immense force
Recedes
To merge
To become
Part of the whole


Waves, vani
That spread
Invisibly
Through the air
Ether spreading
Sounds of creation
Soft, humming
The primordial OM
Rustling, sussurring
With the breeze
Rattling with stones
Treading steps
Of creatures, humans
Creating cacophony
Voices in Babel

 

Waves of sound
Alaivani
That need to be heard
Words, notes
Ideas, notions
Spiritual inspirations

Temple
bells
Church peals
Call of the muezzin
That appeal
To goodness
Viciously twisted
Into shrieks of terror
Cries of pain, torture
Death and destruction

 

Waves of silence
Spreading
Solace, serenity

A touch of love

A feel of affection
A caring
A demand to listen
Voices of reason
Of conservation
Ecological preservation
Shunning
Sound pollution
Spreading ripples
Of devotion
Creating empathy

 

Listen to the waves
Let them envelop you
With their soothing

Reviving rejuvenating

Beats, rhythms
Of nature
Of creation
Of music, chants

Of prayers

Benedictions
Humming with belief
Paeans of glory
That is a blessing
A gift from
The Divine
