THE MESSENGER ANTHOLOGY: MIMOSA PUDICA

THE MESSENGER ANTHOLOGY: MIMOSA PUDICA

Mimosa pudica the sole purpose of my pilgrimage

Prima facie I thought your bashness is the key to your mystery

Bengali loja boti! I pronounced; posterity labelled me mistaken

Your radiant beauty is a clarion call for attention

When attention heeds to your call makaliya holds sway

In the bid to comprehend your mystery, I embarked on a journey of thought

Putri malu!; my initial notion of you

I was mistaken again…for the cause of your shyness is the purpose of my attention

Mimosa! My humble one

Mimosa!! My bashful one

I worship thy presence with emeralds of praise

I worship thy absence with shreds of love; woven to intensify my hate.

PUBLIUS CRASSUS (JIA)
