Just testing

(1291)  Kena ankhi chalachala jala bhare

Why do your eyes brim with streaming tears?
Oh what has brought you down,
An undue monsoon now?
Upon your cheeks why does the light rebound?
With Whose love are they glistening?

Aided by ambrosia's essence in your neck,
And a milkmaid's[1] load of love borne in your breast,
You float off to some remote sphere.
Who is He that calls you endlessly?

To your path of movement there's no finish;
What you long for, it is nectar limitless.
Is that why, shunning all, ascetic's garb you have worn?
Oh touchstone-streak[2] pristine, you are in fixed ideation.

  1. Could it be that our lovelorn tears are His touchstone streak?
