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.
