Brihintha Burggee- A Poem

The Most Beloved, You

My heart became an unwavering tornado,
Unable to choose the perfect emotion --
Was it the grief of nothingness,
Or the impatience to embrace everything?

Even though, only petals of roses 
spluttered from my mouth,
in Your praise. 
Only streams of pearls 
flowed down my flustered cheeks,
in Your fear. 
Only peaceful humility fuelled wings 
to a heart full of roots when I prostrated
to You.

And I knew my heart was once again
Pregnant with hopes of bliss.
