The bells of the temple chiming

Thong thóng thong thóng

The trees are singing in high

Hush hush hush hush

The earth is shaking in crescendo rhythm

Thor thor thor thór

The sky, blue autumn, black with clouds

Grrr grrr grrr grrr

Storm is coming; the horizon hazied grey

Hish hish hish hish

The thunder clapped deafing e’one

Kor kor kor koraát

The trident of lighting strike the tall tree

Boóm boóm bóóm báng

The jungle is flambeau now with every tree burning

Caws hoops trots flaps

The herd is running e’where, all direction

Another trident; another clap; the sky rumble

Grrr grrr grrr grrŕ

The final moment is ascending the clock has stopped

Tick tock tick ť

There…there…are the beats of damru

Di drim di drim di drim

Listen there it is…listen, there…it…is…

Di drim di drim di drim


Brainstorming on something catastrophe last few days. The result is this onomapoetic effects poem on the beginning of Mahadev Shiva’s Rudra Tandava. Please comment if you can after Like. Will like to hear your tips & suggestions.

P.S. If response is favorable I’ll continue this in few more parts.
