Posted September 2, 2009

An 11-year-old girl, Amrita Geddam of Waukesha, Wisconsin, has written a beautiful poem ("Birth of the Destroyer of Darkness") told from the viewpoint of Krishna's father Vasudeva, on Krishna Janmastami. I have made a small video featuring this poem accompanied by images of Lord Krishna. The poem is uploaded on YouTube I invite all devotees to enjoy it. Here area few lines of the poem:

His skin was dark blue, a colour of the night sky,
yet softer than the softest of clouds.
His calming brown eyes glittered,
not because of the moonlight,
but because of His own divine grace.
