The Sacrificial Heart - I - Poem by Pushpa Ratna Tuladhar
Rachel! Your inner beauty can
Never hid in a bushel
By those beholding eyes,
Who recognize your pretty devoted soul
Shattered on the skin of this earth
By the speedy motion
Of an Israeli army bulldozer
That runs mercilessly over
Your young and courageous hearts
As a stout and strong human shield
To total destruction of humane human
And to tyranny of the ferocious tyrant
In the city of Rafah.
Not only Rafah
Even the burning sands of the sands
Shed stream of tears.
Rafah fascinates the reality
Of your blossoming beauteous mind
And moves her hands caressing
Your golden long hairs
That spread over pale colored earth
Washed by your bloody bloods.
You’ve mingled your hearts
With the hearts of the Rafah
Who shares your inner feeling
Deeply in the depths of your soul
And hides unuttered agony within its soul
Rachel! Your mind’s so nice and soft
But so strong and stout
Nudges a deepest love to humane human
And an everlasting peace to humanity.
Shattered rose petals,
Withered to deep red
In the sands of the sands,
Touch the earth beneath your natured body
And feel the touch that stilled the quiet sea.
Rhythms amidst the sea
Feel the waves
Whispering against your skin
Agglutinated to the pale earth
And fade out to all eternity
To save Rafah in total turmoil.
To bow my head to you, Rachel,
The only white rose of the Sands,
You moved up to the distant bluish sky
Twinkling as a brilliant star for ever and
Beholding the only peace for all eternity,
In the green planet far beneath..
