Dark Daughter - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

Dark Daughter, in making the statues of yours,
In sculpting you,
Drawing sculptures and figurines,
You ask the Divine Deity
To bless me
So that I may accomplish it
In the dark,
Working under the lamplight,
Sketching and drawing you,
Carving and chiseling
Out of clay, stone or wood.

Dark daughter,
What it is dark will remain,
Unto the end
And the mystery
We cannot resolve it,
Unravel it,
The mystery of Creation,
Life and death,
Your living, mine living
All under purview,
Scrutiny and annotation.

Dark daughter, you ask the presiding Goddess
To be kind enough to endow with
The bounties of Hers,
So that I may raise the statues
In Her design,
Chiselling and carving
And painting black,
Dark the Goddess Kali,
Dark you,
Dark the Creation,
Dark daughter,
Nocturnal and supernatural and artistic.
