Daily Poem: I Praise that Silent Listener

Filed Under Poem for Hela | Comments Off on Daily Poem: I Praise that Silent Listener

Today’s poem is a lovely piece from Vidya (also known as Vijjaka), the seventh century female Sanskrit poet.

I praise that silent
listener
her whole body bristling—
only a poet
linking words with ineluctable cadence
can touch
her insides with fire.
