Mallika Dhar


Endless, boundless sky
 Wavy, blue, indestructible-
So empty and so full !
So far away and still so near!
I saw the glimpse of it through a window.

I was confined in my little room-
I kept the silk threads in my box
 I kept small glittering pieces of pebbles,
 I kept the mysterious hymns
 Along with the stories of hope and good-news.

One day all the walls around my room vanished-
Endless sky enfolded me from all sides,
I swam freely in the ocean of
 Wavy, blue, eternal space of limitless love.
