When You came
I was asleep, insensate.

You began playing the viina
and I awoke to its faint lingering notes.

I’d been caught up in sleeping age after age
under the dark influence of samskaras.

Now I awakened in my room
and heard the sound of Your ankle bells
the buzzing of bees
the roar of the ocean.

And then the vibration sound of the Cosmos
the sound of new life.
