Hamsa Smiles

Mid Summer Day-Dream by A. Ramachandran 
[Hamsa is a mythical bird found in Indian folklore. It is said to represent perfect union, balance and life. A constant repetition of the word "hamso" changes it to "Soaham", which means "That I am". The flight of the Hamsa also symbolizes the escape from the cycle of samsara.] 

Like hamsa living in water,
yet untouched by water,

They continued to strive
in the unstriving,

Hamsa did what hamsa does,
Experiments in pearls, milk, water and dust.

And after all this while,
hamsa still smiles.
while trying to be still a while.

- Neha
