Her call

by Renton de Alwis

Here's my heart
give me thy grace
for I prayed each day
upon your feet
energized my soul
with palms stretched
incensed flames
at temple doors
ringing bells
fill me whole
offerings made
fruit, flowers and more

Please my Lord
take my heart
hear it's beat
touch it deep
feel my pain
ease disdain
let wrinkled joys
turn heavenly keys
let all my kin
sing chants of love
hold thy hand
make holy vows
and fly thy kite.
(Inspiration to write this poem was drawn from seen a photograph posted by my FB friend Kumari Herath)
