    Ungrateful Sorrow

    Ungrateful Sorrow

    At dawn shey departed
    My mind tried to console me -
    " Everything is Maya".
    Angrily I replied:
    "Here's this sewing box on the table,
    that flower-pot on the terrace,
    this monogrammed hand-fan on the bed---
    all these are real."

    My mind said: "Yet, think again."
    I rejoined: " You better stop.
    Look at this storybook,
    the hairpin halfway amongst its leaves,
    signaling the rest is unread;
    if all these things are "Maya",
    then why should "shey" be more unreal?"

    My mind becomes silent.
    A friend arrived and says:
    "That which is good is real
    it is never non-existent;
    entire world preserves and cherishes it its chest
    like a precious jewel in a necklace."

    I replied in anger: "How do you know?
    Is a body not good? Where did that body go?"

    Like a small boy in a rage hitting his mother,
    I began to strike at everything in this world
    that gave me shelter.
    And I screamed:" The world is treacherous."

    Suddenly, I was startled.
    It seemed like someone admonished me :" You- ungrateful ! "

    I looked at the crescent moon
    hidden behind the tamarisk tree outside my window.
    As if the dear departed one is smiling
    and playing hide-and-seek with me.

    From the depth of darkness punctuated by scattered stars
    came a rebuke: "when I let you grasp me you call it an deception,
    and yet when I remain concealed,
    why do you hold on to your faith in me with such conviction?"

    (Rabindranath Tagore)
