Shiva’s Dancing


Inhale thyme, the spice of life
Dance the music of rhythm
A tapestry woven through
Time and space in harmony

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  4. And inside Orion, where gas the size of planets is spitting out of a black hole’s enormous yaw,
    and where incubators are blazing suns out of what seems to light,
    but is really reactors coalescing into the splitting of nuclei,

    Shiva went walking.

    As he walked he felt, rather than saw, the forces of destruction
    annihilating into the forces of creation,
    and the foment caused by his walking and his thoughts
    inside a place generating the growth of a galaxy

    let him sit on the side of a mountain in the Himalayas
    as a snow leopard and two spotted cubs
    leapt from a ledge of old ice
    toward a cliff face where mountain goats danced with dark hooves away
    into clouds descended from heaven.

  5. Hmmm, I don’t know Ben Naga:

    Shiva’s Dancing

    Gas from a black hole’s yaw hurled massively
    Through deep, deep space. In Orion suns blazed
    Out from the incubator galaxy,
    New stars a coalescing plasma raised
    From clouds of light as Shiva walked
    In nothingness and felt unraveling
    Annihilate into creation as he stalked
    Through dances of light’s christening.

    Upon a Himalayan mountaintop
    He sat. Snow leopards, muscling with grace,
    Leapt from a ledge of ice, the yawing drop
    Below them sheer, a cliff’s dark, rocky face.
    Two mountain goats danced dark with hooves away
    Into a cloudy heaven’s roiled ballet.
