Carpe Diem # 556 Dusk

Yasoda Damodar                                                                                                                  


                                              Baby Krishna tells mom
                                     from morn to dusk, I take the cattle
                                              How  can I steal butter?

 (The story goes that Lord Krishna, as baby loved butter.He steals
butter from  the houses of Gopies, who complained to mother Yashoda
that Krishna steals butter from their houses. When mother scolds him, he
tells her that morning to dusk he takes the cattle for grazing. How can he steal butter ?
His mother ties him to a tree with a rope)


                                             Dusk comes with setting sun
                                      homecoming for birds, animals and mankind
                                               each in his nest sublime.

  3. Truth be told he has to stay put though not the best solution! Would rather think about happenings when dusk comes! Nicely Usha!


  4. The simplicity of a child - I found this very sweet ! :)
