Evening Raga

The Raag drifts through the hall
Seeking the immersed soul; finding
none that it can hold in thrall
it dies alone; the Pandit singing
on stage seems to sense its solitude
and pours his pathos again anew;
on & on this cycle continues, and in
one magic moment, the multitude
joined in shared ecstasy exhale;
for in the timbre of that sacred voice
they hear their living spirit ring true.
