Ardhanarinateshwara Stotra

Found it :

Quote
Her body is fair like the campa flower;
His body is like camphor.
She has elaborately braided hair decked with pearls;
And he has matted hair.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


Her body is sprinkled with musk-vermillion powder;
His body is smeared with funeral pyre ash.
She has the power of sexual desire;
And He is adverse to it.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


From Her you hear the movement of tinkling anklets and bracelets,
His lotus feet have glistening anklets of snakes.
She is adorned with golden armlets,
And He has armlets of snakes.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


Her eyes are like large blue lotuses,
His eyes are like the red lotus.
Her eyes are even,
His eyes are uneven.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


She is wearing a garland of mandar flowers in Her hair,
He is wearing a garland of skulls around His neck.
She is wearing silks of divine quality;
And He is clad only by the sky.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


Her hair is dark like the monsoon clouds;
His matted locks flash with the luster of lightning.
She is Lord of All;
He is Lord of All.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


Hers is the dance that creates differentiation;
His is the dance that destroys everything.
I bow to the Mother of the Universe.
I bow to the Father of the Universe.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.


Her earrings sparkle with radiant, precious stones;
His earrings are hissing snakes.
He embraces Her;
And She embraces Him.

I bow to Shivah and I bow to Shiva.

Dear Jyoti,

Nice poem. Ardhanareeswara is the form of Siva in Arunachalam where Parvati got her half form from Siva.,  Though in
Sri Arunachaleswara Temple, Siva (Arunachaleswara) and Parvati (Apeetakuchambal) have got separate shrines.

Arunachala Siva.
