I Pay Homage

I pay homage to you, Saraswati Devi
You whose face is seen in every careful work of art
You whose home is kept in the space between my breaths
You whose voice is found in between the beating of my heart
I pay homage to you, Saraswati Devi!

  1. Your poetry is great.

    Btw I don’t know if this will interest you, but I found out recently that the title “Paramahamsa”, which is given to self-realized sages/masters, means “supreme swan/goose”, aka he/she who has attained the highest realization. I never made the connection to Saraswati before! It does put your blog name in a new light – you may become a Paramahamsa before you leave this life yourself 🙂

    1. Thank you, that is a wonderful thing to say, and I’m deeply moved by it. ❤

      This blog was indeed (re)named "Flight of the Hamsa" as an homage to Lady Saraswati's swan/goose mount. I only learned the term Paramahamsa quite recently, and you're right, it does lend another layer of meaning to the title! 🙂
