A River In My Heart


I carry a river
who sings
bhatiyali songs to me.
I carry her in my heart.

She carries chip, pansi, dingi, sampan
and all other kinds of boats-
of fishermen's pride.

Also she carries chital, boyal, haair
puti, khalisa, meni, pangus and all other
tasty fishes,
fishermen's secret riches.

She carries brides shy
going first time to her new home
in a bojra or gaina with tearful eyes.

She carries besides
all those nimbus clouds of the sky
to their home to the sea nearby.

But this river I carry in my heart
also carries memory of a frightening
war trodden night.

I carry this river in my heart
singing bhatiyali songs to me
far far away who carries my mind.

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
