Valentine’s Day Special: Two love poems by Uma Subedi translated from Nepali to English by renowned poet/author/translator Suman Pokhrel.
Carrying an array of dreams on the forehead,
walking with an endless motion in its footsteps,
falling down and getting up every now and then,
distinct desires are running on their own way.
Wearing a turban of snow around its head,
flying with the beauty of its own soul,
seeking the balmy warmth of winter Sun,
the flowers with fragrance are ascending higher.
Getting confused with its own integrity,
being blended together and parting again,
every color of rainbow, is
searching for its realized identity.
The desires should get to play,
the flowers should get to bloom,
the colors should get to be in sights.
Everyone should get to feel others,
everyone should get to bring oneself out.
it should be pulsating perpetually
for, it’s the heart.
You invited me to settle
inside your heart.
My heart wanted
to swim on the lake of your heart,
to keep drowning into the depth of love,
and to stay hiding inside your heart
for the whole of my life.
My heart kept searching for
the entrance to your heart,
it searched in the company of the days
and searched with the supports of nights.
It searched all over my dreams and imaginations.
One melodious moment,
an affectionate touch caressed
my shuddering heart.
Carrying a spirit like that of a waterfall
getting oneself rapped with the rays of hopes
my heart ran after that attraction,
and kept running across the bundles of desires
embracing the excitement of entering your heart.
On colliding with my eyes,
the delightful brilliance emerged from
the pane of your heart
merged with me.
