Mallika Dhar


You are in our stories, myths and legends-
Your two hands simultaneously touch
Death and immortality.
At the root of the world-tree
You offer your own heart
With so much love and compassion for us!

When moonless night is full of starry wonder
Our dreams try to embrace you.
Our hopes, like ships
Go sailing through the ocean
To reach a land far far away, where you live.

You're in our poems and stories...
