POETRY: May He Protect You

My great friend, the author, Susanna Moore [My Old Sweetheart, In the Cut, One Last Look are three of her books] - one of her favourite poems reminiscent of the great underlying spirituality of the Indian subcontinent.

Dedicated to John Stefanidis
Krishna went out to play

Mother and he ate dirt
Is that true Krishna
who said it

Your brother Balarama
Not true
Look at my face

Open your mouth
he opened it and she stood speechless
inside was the universe

 may he protect you
