ARDHANARISHWAR- A Poem by Alakananda Pramanik


by Alakananda Pramanik

Walking down the street

I chanced upon the beauty of a tree

Different, yet special with its own identity

depicting the beauty of TWO in ONE BODY...

It stopped me on my track!

The duality of the tree screamed in silence

To unfold untold stories of enduring all weathers,

Two entities exist separately yet within each other,

Just like Ardhanarishwar…

A form of Shiva and Parvati appearing together in one body

Two genders united in togetherness….

Not to outshine each other, rather complement each other!

Shiva as Being and Shakti as Becoming.

The duality of nature is fascinating!
