Krsna’s beauty is indescribable

Many English words beginning with “gl,” such as glitter, glare, glassy, glimmer, and glisten refer to bright, shiny and smooth things. So when Srila Prabhupada described Krsna’s complexion like that of a “fresh rain cloud” (clouds being wet) this added yet another dimension of moist, shimmering smoothness to an already beautiful and inexpressible blue-black skin color.
