His Flute

Atul Chandra Sarkar

I have been waiting so long,
For a glimpse
Of my Beloved,
That I ought to have been
Dismayed, but I am not;
Endless waiting has ruptured me,
Yet, I am neither broken,
Nor worn, nor torn,
‘Coz though Unseen,
I can feel Him,
The coolest of warmest Love;
He has pulled me close,
Nay, the closest He could do,
I have become His flute;
My softest groans,
Escape through embouchures,
The apertures waft
Poignant melodies,
Touching souls;
My listeners are lost,
In the Divine Bliss,
Of my Beloved’s
Infinite Love.
