O! Flower of the heavens,
Why that forlorn look in your eyes?
You are the life’s beginning
and the visible horizon.
You swept like the breeze
and stayed as the breath.
O! Sanguine surge in the soul...
You are my akin as well as my foe,
the flower of love and a thorn in the womb,
the cherished rain and the clouting thunder,
a neonate body as well as an aching death
O! Conqueror of death, conferrer of life...
You are my wealth as well as my wrecked ship,
an enriched epic as well as the error in it,
lent light and the bitter tears at night,
my bountiful sky as well as my broken wings,
And the beloved sorrow that I nurtured.triskaidekaphobia
