Poetry

Punjabo

A Poem by GURMEET KAUR

 

 

 





When she sings

Five rivers flow

She is the song

The song of yearning

The song of merging.

 

When she speaks

Wisdom streams

She is the story

The story of time

The story of space

 

When she gazes

Reflection springs

She is the thought

The thought of roots

The thought of fruits

 

When she saddens

Silence imbues

She is the saga

The saga of betrayal

The saga of dishonor.

 

When she is incensed

Storms blow

She is the goddess

The goddess of defiance

The goddess of resistance.

When she cries / I hear her sighs / Her tears become my tears / Across oceans / We unite / In mourning.

When she decorates/adorns herself, prophets/Gurus come to live with her.
