Shivapriya (Shiva-blessed Beloved)


I saw the childless mother
Sitting with the folded hands
Into the older lime-stone powder and small bricks made
Centuries old temples,
She passing the whole night
Lonely and dark
Before the Shiva-lingam,
Praying to, seeking blessing from,
Invoking the supernatural, nocturnal power,
A devotee in her sadhna
To have the mystical communion,
Coming in the form of dreams.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
