i'll be the tiger's wife today (P)

 

i’ll be the tigers wife today

 

 

Durga, the goddess with 8 hands

is riding a tiger

 

she’s got a big crown full of jewels

a couple of swords

a bow and arrow

two scepters

a conch shell

a whirling universe

and a tablet scroll

in Her hand

 

i suppose that symbolizes

all the effort one must make

to cut through maya

to see things in perspective

to hold oneself in high esteem

to tame the desire tiger

to be armed

conscious

alert

aware of lifes inequities

to bear gifts gracefully

 

the tiger is carrying Her….

 

his mouth is open

his teeth are barred

he is walking

ready for what’s coming

meeting it head on

 

i’ll be the tiger’s wife today
