The Sacrificial Heart - Ii - Poem by Pushpa Ratna Tuladhar

Rachel!
Your inner being’s soul,
So strong and stout,
Though crushed by the speed
Of an Israeli army bulldozer and
Painted your portrait without frame
To the pale skinned canvas of the Earth,
The twinkling diamond of golden ring
Worn on your silky creamy and skinny finger,
Dazzled like star of the azure sky,
But it’d never turned to dust.

Rachel!
The twinkling of the big diamond
Still shines with brilliance and radiance
Like a rare jewel elegantly cut.

Every exquisite facet
Exposed to the pupil of the beholding eyes
Recognizes her Beauty within her Beauty
As the colors of the spectrum split,
Even after her breath calms down to stillness.

Your sacrificial heart and soul enliven
The diamond studded in your ring
And leaves a poor poet in awe.
