Poem by Kali Das 

The following poem is from a group of devotional verses called "To My Devi, Poems of the Heart."

The mountain stands steady in its grandeur,
rising from the mists of the lowlands,
summit shrouded in clouds of unknowing.
A hidden path winds its way up from the jungle,
lost to all but one in love.
Blessed by the Devi,
she endured the hardships,
followed her inspiration
and entered the cave of the heart of the mountain.
Her sanctuary found
she shed the coarse garments of the world
and surrendered to the quiet ecstasy of utter stillness
deep within her mountain,
unaware that at that moment,
a thousand birds rose from the mountainside,
taking flight in joy!
