“I thirst so fetch me water please”

The Lord requests on dusty trek

On village houses fronts he knocked

‘Till beautiful maiden’s door unlocked

Entranced and drowning in her eyes

Captured with love’s sweet surprise

As time went by and wedlock sealed

He had children cattle house and field

But gods of storms were then at hand

Torrential floods destroyed his land

Desperately fighting for kin and wife

Swift flowing currents took their life

Bereft of wealth, wife children, and all

He wept and shook from empty soul

Then gentle voice his depression burst

Dear, where is the water for my thirst?

Awakening there to the Lord at last

He saw that just half hour had passed

Where were the scenes of a dozen years?

And the joy that ended in sorrowful tears?

“My child”, said Lord “You asked to know

What is this Maya and It’s magic show?”


O Lord of Maya, You alone can lift the veil of my delusion. Please listen to my yearning heart and out of pity for me break the spell. Grant that all may awaken from this dream world and find that peace that passes all understanding.
