A Blissful Offering - Poem by Tarapada Mohapatra

What can I offer for you
at best my innocence
my rugged beliefs
and rough understandings
of myself and my world around

My offerings will be like
a river sinks gracefully
into the profundity
of endless ocean
like the horizon meets
with the vastness of sky
that never begun
only spreading with expanse
like the soul disappears
in the paradisiacal heaven.

What can I offer for you
at best my innocence
my dubious existence
undefined love and reverences
your expanding embrace
is so gargantuan, enticing
so flirtatious and inviting
that would meet with my warmth
and would create a sparkling bubble
of our entwining exuberance.

Let the river flows into the ocean
the horizon meet the sky
the touch tender the innocence
Let the bubble of life
forays into the eternity
Let a blissful offering
torch the kindness tenderly
and ennoble our youthful hearts
Let the blissful offering
be blessed with divine fluorescence.

What can I offer for you
At best my innocence.
