I put you on a pedestal,
With fighting fish crawling under the mud at your feet
In a serene place enchanted with greenery
Where the rain drops with fragrant flowers
All around you, and at your feet
Where the monkeys laugh and play in swings atop balconies,
And the dragon snake slithers through the skies
That grumbles like mortar and pestle
And streams water from Shiva’s crown
Which flows into the rifts and valleys alongside the pointy mountains
That surround the pedestal that you stand on;
Smiling at the sky, and sometimes smiling at me,
As my heart swells with giddy
