The light fell just the right way

That day
The light fell just the right way
From the window sills
Illuminating the face on the side
You had shown me
Without any tear
But the other side did
Have the signs of dried tears
You couldn’t contain
How could you have

Why have you resolved

Oct 2&2 2011

O ma kaali
Why have you resolved
To extinguish the fire
In which I wanted to burn
Rather smoulder
May be one day the
Stench of the half burned body
Would have reminded you
Of the virtue of raining
Your mercy
On the living corpses
What else is the
State of
All those who seek your attention
And only get the ambers
Hot red ambers
To ignite the fire
To purify oneself
Some day
U will accept
That the parts which burned
Were not the ones u wanted to preserve
Yet these were the fragments
Forgiven in the past
And thus ready to burn,
Once again


it is very strange
that your elders
see your future
in absence of wholesome kindness
graciousness and nurturance
some day you will know
that despite a river of flowing love
you were denied the access to its shores
but we will accept you always, no matter where you are
no matter what you are made to think

because you are a precious part of us

stay away as far as possible

when i do ask you to come to my door
find an excuse
dont come,
stay away as far as possible
lest my devotion
prayers and submission
invoke your piety
you become compassionate O Ma Kaali
and then
grant my prayers
what will sustain my
inadequacy then
what will make me crazy
and how will
drops of dew
fertilize the
beds of devotion
