Heaven Has Drenched You With Its Beauty. To Akriti Mattu

One look at You, and the Heart melts.

Heaven has drenched You with Its beauty;

Decorated Your sweet curls with braids,

Woven from the finest silk.

Deep within we blend,

Like the butterfly and the caterpillar.

We dine on silvery clouds;

Sail to the edge of the moonlit glow.


Please do not tell me that we’re parting,

For my world will collapse.

When a wound is touched, it hurts.

How can the inner wound of separation,

Ever become bearable?

If You should leave, my Beloved,

I’ll sail on storm- tossed oceans,

Serenade the moon to bring You down.


My quest for Your sweet touch;

That deep alluring gaze,

Is beyond parallel, and the tide of yearning

Tears at my garments, until I have,

Only my nakedness for protection.

I wish to be a pawn to the rough winds;

A slave to the turbulence,

Beating against a lovelorn heart.

Only to be tied and lashed with Love,

By Thy sweet silhouette of enchanting fire.


I know, I know, that Heaven

Has drenched You with Its beauty;

Dressed You in fine drapes;

Covered You with golden raiment.

She has adorned and bedecked Thy Form,

With sweet garlands of the most expensive fragrances.

How I long to swoon at Your delicate feet,

Become – as it were – like a doll of salt,

Only to bathe in Your Delight, and

Melt in the ambrosia of Your Sweetness.

Currently, I'm studying child psychology.

Great Field.

Frankly you understand my poetry, and that is a mark of deep and loving spirituality. I'm sure that Child Psychology is a field that you would understand. Bear in mind that my Teacher saw Psychology as being not effective as Meditation. For him it is better to let the emotions come to the fore slowly, by the descent of a Higher Light.

With children, seems a good thing, and they can be very loving. One of my friends did it. Alas! he got married, had children and the responsibilities that go with it, then disappeared.

I always wish you well and pray for Gods blessings and love in your life. Salaam!
