Desire and Surrender

i took my desire
And put it in a red ribbonCloughties
Tied the ribbon to a tree
Yes, i know soon there will be breeze
Which may take my desire to thee

It may or it may not

If it does, You will see
What is this desire eating me
Well, you may or you may not
Then again, ifΒ You do see
You may decide to fulfill it
Yes, pronto, immediately

But then again, you may not

Whatever and however
I leave it all to Thee
Your Grace and Mercy
For this desire and me
From now to eternity

Sri Krishna Sharanam Mama

  2. So sweet, and profound…the image of your red ribbon amid the leaves…waiting in surrender…thank you, my sweet friend, Krishnapriya! Is the color significant, ormight any color be a worthy offering to your Lord Krishna? I see it as the heart beating in truest desire and longing…thank you for the pictures you conjure in me. Blessings and much love.

    1. “Red” color just popped up in my mind. πŸ™‚ i know you understand. πŸ™‚ But i have seen people tie decorative red clothes on sacred trees near temples, as a prayer. Sometimes when the wish is fulfilled, they come back and untie it. πŸ™‚

      1. Lovely! And just calling trees “sacred” is such a deep and meaningful tradition…we hold them dear, butfall just short of calling them sacred. Blessings to you!
