“In April I Will Give My Heart To Anyone At All” | Prompt #7

April! This month was never this much loved until last year.

The year which brought the change in the world which no one had ever thought about. Pandemic. Lockdown. COVID-19 and what not.

In all these things, one thing I got in touch is the love for my God, my Krishna. Yes! This month is special to because of Krishna. I’ve been a Vaishnav, coming from Yadav family, and my God, Krishna was also Yadav. I never got so much in love with Him, until last year when I watched the entire Mahabharata day in day out.

I have never read or heard about it, but the moment I got the chance, it just melt my heart away, and I started falling in love with everything that’s been taught and explained in Mahabharata.

April, was the month when I spiritually grew up so much. The new year brings the joy, happiness and the excitement for my birthday to come next month. (May 21)

I’ve learnt we, as humans, spend most of time in cribbing about what we don’t have, or what others are having than just being grateful for what we ACTUALLY have. April made me realize that. The people around me, the utilities, the love, and family who is so caring and loving.

April, for me, is just to thank the Almighty for everything that it has provided me with. My little poem for the prompt 7 portrays my love for it with a smile at the end.


I’ve walked in love’s world on my way
As I’ve learned the lesson a little while
The financial year has ended just now,
Let’s welcome April with a little smile?

A little while when the month has arrived,
The new habits of writing and poems dived,
How the shadow of darkness comes when the day is done,
April is full of love, and fun.

I’ve made no vows, no promises are broken,
My love is pure, and as free as a hill
There’s nothing I wish I had not spoken
As I believe, love is all that one needs to feel.

So shall we crib about the life,
And cry for a while,
Or rather get together on this day,
And let’s make each other smile?

    1. This is so good to know that you could relate with my example with Mahabharata. It is one the life changing things which has happened to me.

      Can you remember any of the moments which brought a huge change in your life, if I may ask?

      1. Yeah exactly, the feeling you are wrong, then accepting it and letting the feeling sink in takes time. We are constantly changing everyday sometimes willing sometimes unknowingly

  1. I have recently completed Mahabharata and I am in love with Krishna. Specially I love those small bites given by Krishna in each episodes. Its actually teaches us so many things about life.. how significant yet insignificant we are in this cosmos.

    Love the poem. Have an awesome April ahead.

    1. This is a great thing to know about you, that Mahabharata is one of your favorites too.

      Undoubtedly, it is clear why do we connect with someone so much because there are a few things which connect to them unknowingly. And this is one for the reasons, I get to know your views.

      Krishna, is such an unpredictable God. I’m always in awe with Him, and ever since I’ve gotten to know more about Him, I dwell in the ocean of His leela.

      I go write till infinity about my love for Him.

      I wish you a great April too. Thank you for reading, and sharing your part of love towards the same.

      1. I had no interest of watching Mahabharata but my friends convinced me and I am thankful.
        You are so right its so good to connect with someone with similar interest.. to talk about so many things.
        And yeah Krishna is awesome. He just doesn’t care what other say about him. If he believes something is right he will stood by it no matter what. Maybe thats why he is called God.

      2. Thanks to your friends. Really!

        He’s a God who had been on this Earth, not as a God but as a human. Just like us. The best part about Krishna is He is always the one who’d find himself in the worldly things: stealing butter from Gopis, playing flute for Radha, playing hide and seek with Gopis’ clothes, playing with His buddies, and not to forget the other side when He kills his Maternal uncle too.

        He’s the one to guide Arjuna for the path of Dharma, and also the one to manipulate others with his words and initiated a war too.

        He’s just never ending ocean of love. Krishna is beyond anything.

  2. Before anything and everything, my eyes are glued to the rhyme scheme, you did a fantastic job already.

    As I always tell you the same thing that you’re very very unpredictable, you proved it again. Looking at the title, one might think it’ll be linked to some romantic kinda love, but when we start to read it, the scenerio is changed completely. Krishna, Oh how I know your extreme love for him already. It’s beyond anything.

    Coming to later segments of poem, how it’s said instead of crying let’s make each other smile. We can do that atleast.
    Tonight no fav.lines or stanza, I loved the entire poem, especially the positivity in words.
    AMAZING ✨

    1. Your entire comment is so inspiring.

      For the rhythmic tone, kindly thank my Ma’am for teaching me in that way. I was worst at it until last year before I could learn the scientific art behind it.

      Romantic love is so overrated now that anything you call it as love is waste until and unless that’s the love with Krishna.

      I’ve been there and done that. No wonder, Gautam Siddhartha left his home for the enlightenment in the forest and became Buddha.

      One needs to come out of that zone to reach the level of Krishna. I’m nothing yet I want to because a lot. Not for the world to show, but to impress my God, who’s given me enough.

      How happy I am tonight, coming from death threats, sleeping pills, graveyards, and cemetery to this enlightenment.

      It always portrays the cycle of life when someone is so much into worldly things, and then at one point of time, he reaches to go nowhere. He’s where he needs to be, he does what is supposed to be done.

  3. What Krishna teaches us is, you can be part of this world, enjoy and at the same time involve yourself in worship unlike Buddha, he left his wife in midnight to attain enlightenment under a tree, which isn’t justified anywhere, I read it she kept weeping throughout.

    Don’t know much, but his way wasn’t much approved. You don’t have to leave everything to attain enlightenment and become a monk.

    Anyways, I am really happy to read a positive poetry from you, no doubt it’s Krishna who took you out of your graveyard kinda stuff.

    1. Yes. Yashodhara. She was Buddha’s wife. You’d be shocked to know when Buddha came back home after years, she asked him where did you go to find Enlightenment? Is it that it can only be found in the darkness of a forest? If no, then why didn’t you stay here at home?

      Buddha had no answer to this.

      So again coming back to the reality, Krishna teaches us to live in the world, around people, with people, but we don’t have to be like them. Be connected to the God in the world full of people.

      I’m glad too that, the period is over now.

      1. Is it, I did not know post that, he returned too. Okay.

        We can be attached yet detached. Well as writers we are already blessed with that trait in us. We are in world yet away from it.

  4. Oh, what an inspiring poem full of positive vibes. 😀 I remember how you totally fell in love with Krishna in the lockdown. Such a beautiful dedication to your beloved Krishna. 🤠 Also, the rhymes are on point, haha.

      1. Actually both are the same. Vishnu or Bhisnu is the one who upkeep the world.

        Krishna, on the other hand, is the eighth Avatar of Vishnu who was born 5000 years ago on Earth.

      2. Oh my my! Are you? You’re kidding me right?

        That’s the reason I was wondering, I’ve never mentioned on the blog about being a Vaishnav, how did this come in your head.

        I wear Tulsi mala too, as suggested by my Guru.
