Śivoham

In childhood
I had the form of Ganeśa
— thick-limbed, pot-bellied
substrate of all universes.

In youth
I had the form of Skanda
— a rebel, running-through
expectations for radical Truth.

In adulthood
I have the form of Śiva
— bearded, filled up with
silence, wandering in peace.

In all ages
I may take the formless form
— cross-legged, become Lingam-
in-Yoni, Sadāśivom Sadāśivom.
