Love of Ocean

Love of Ocean

by Ashok Bhargava

Translation in Korean by Ahn Bong Ja 

I come to you

and leave behind my home…

snow-capped peaks

forest streams

roaring waterfalls

running rivers

to dive into your depths

to merge in your love

I come to make you

soul of my senses

eyes of my sight

feel of my lips

sound of my laughter

aroma of my breath

rhythm of my heart

taste of my tongue

I come to you

and leave behind

my fears

my doubts

my vulnerabilities

O my love

take me as I am

in your arms

hide me

in your folds

forever.

사랑의 바다

시 /     애숔 바가바

번역 / 안봉자

나 당신께로 옵니다

눈 덮인 산봉우리들과

숲 속의 실개천들

소리치는 폭포들과

유유히 흐르는 강들 …

그 모든 것을 집에 두고

당신 속에 깊이 뛰어들어서

당신의 사랑과 만나려고 옵니다

당신을

내 오감(五感)의 혼으로

시각의 눈으로

입술의 느낌으로

웃음의 소리로

숨결의 향기로

심장의 박동으로

혀의 맛으로, 만들려고 옵니다

나 당신께로 옵니다

나의 두려움들과

의심들과

상처받기 쉬운 약점들을

모두 뒤에 두고 옵니다

나의 사랑이여.

나를 있는 그대로 받아주소서

당신의 두 팔 안에

보듬어 주소서

그 품에 숨겨주소서

영원히

In Between

12112295_1021832841223332_8501788419297542749_n

 

look between the sights

hear between the words

feel between the heart

smell between the minds

taste between the moments

there you’ll find

the magic of words

the miracles of poetry,

and a lot more

‘Remember’ poem by Ashok Bhargava

961609_10203100698990976_489842732_n

You and me
on a long and winding road
in a hilly city.

Quietly, uttering no words
naive and carefree
hand in hand we walk
counting power poles.

When tired to move
even a single step
you would say
just one more pole.

Today
all alone
I have returned to our past
the road.

The poles look at me
inquisitively
as if asking about
your whereabouts.

Exhausted from walking
I exert to the next pole
thinking
you were a fast walker.
Perhaps
you are waiting
for me
at the next pole.

‘With You’ by Ashok Bhargava

I am changed and
I feel
a brand new world
unfolds for me

I smile with joy and
discover how selfless
love exists
in you

I discovered how
fascinating is the full moon
and amazing is the morning sun

I ask myself
how so much joy can spring
from everything so ordinary

Maybe it is ME who has grown ordinary
Maybe . . . over long, long years
I just grew smaller

‘You’ by Ashok Bhargava

You said it so casually –
lets just be friends from now on
as if we had no past.

Without waiting
you hide your face
and turn away.

For months we were together
like a tree and a vine
entwined
breathing in the same space
but now I am a tree
seeing you flow away
like a river.
