Shiva In Ecstasy
Shiva is dancing, lost in the ecstasy of Self,
sounding his own cheeks.
His tabor is playing and the garland of skulls is
swinging in rhythm.
The waters of the Ganga are roaring among
his matted locks.
The great trident is vomiting fire, and the moon on his
forehead is fiercely flaming.
