For my Wife
by Prof. Dr. Anil K. Prasad

On      a
journey            away
from you         to
a          far       away
place       from       you
I admire          your
magpie-packing and
insistence to see
the unforeseen         you
saved me from shabbiness
of appearance
and the fate forced me
to face the reality
in that scholarly assemblage
of Yu
 
where I travelled to be
better than
myself to be
face to face
with my self
stripped of abundance
I have been used to
where
you were
within me:

the tranquil face
of a Buddha
in Dazu


Yu: the local name of Chongqing
Dazu: Dazu County (160 km to the west of Chongqing) in Sichuan Province in China famous for carved stone figures relating mainly to Buddhism.

Comment Nothing is holier in life than
Consciousness of our love
The best and most beautiful
Feelings that heart preserves
Can neither be touched nor seen
But its impact fills our body
And soul with positive energy

Recollect what lies behind us
To rejoice sweet memories
And fill what lies before us
With thoughts of optimism
To live at peace in reality
With her love, that lies within us
Dreaming about a great future
