Sweet love song...



Have you heard the ancient lore


Of the two koyal birds


Who could live not without each other

For they each breathed life into the other?


Their names were ku & su.


Together they soared


Across horizons pink & blue


Flapping their wings in unison
Joyous in their divine union.


And then, one fatal day


A tremendous storm blew their way


They fought the relentless gale


Until their wings, tired and frail,


Surrendered to destiny’s cruel game.


Many days & hungry nights later


Su found his way to their battered nest


Kuhu he called, where are you!


But silence was all that his empty heart got.


Eons later, until this day, on every stormy night and day


He calls out loud his twin soul’s name

With faith that someday he shall be heard.


So sweet is his love song, his shattered soul cry,

That it delights our unseeing hearts & eyes.

But that harbinger of relief as the monsoons quell our thirst

Shall remain unquenched

With the sweet name of his beloved bringing music to our ears....

Kuhu kuhu kuhu kuhu…
