August 18


this day of your birth
fills with euphoric bliss
yet heart’s vessel tops off
in emotional turbulence
waves of sadness
want their hearing but
how do I come to terms
with this high, low seesawing
you arrived amidst great fanfare
and ecstatic devotional celebration
I remain rooted still confused
by internal pangs in mixed signals

I know mom is in your care
where she truly belonged, you
came down In her stead, now kindly
reveal yourself, calm me down
