8. polindamugiRkanRupOlE - like the offspring of the cloud
In Periyazhwar Thirumozhi 2-7-4, "theruvinkaNNinRu" hymn, Periyazhwar runs out of comparisons in the real world to describe Krishna's beauty and makes comparison to an imaginary object. "puruvangarunguzhal neRRi polinda mugiRkanRupOlE uruvamazhagiya nambi" - the beautiful form alike the offspring of the cloud that has eyebrows and dark hair with a forehead between them. This is an exercise in the imaginary world as there is no offspring of the cloud that also has eyebrows and dark hair on either side of the forehead! Words and objects appear to materialise from diverse domains, even the imaginary, to serve as suitable comparisons to the Lord's beauty.
