happy birthday son

 

you

are
indeed
my blessing
bestowed
post
non-stop
prayers
and agonies’
sum total
of 1800+
teary pleas
sent forth
~
implicit faith
had propelled
this relentless
pursuit
to be
heard…
my turn
finally came
with your
gurgling arrival
filling my world
with unabated
joy
~
now
my heart
ceaselessly
blesses you
and yours for son
one can miss
a step or two
as sister, wife
friend, partner
but never
as
a loving
mom

Happy Birthday with tons of blessings
today, always …till eternity and beyond

winter chill

On this chilly winter’s early morning – I rub my palms and place them on my eyelids – let yesterday’s congealed captures thaw and drip wordlessly – some stories need no words – I simply sigh and curl up inside my cocoon of comforters hibernating

longings

Some longings
leave me insatiate…….
come in any form
in full spate
slake
my bereft(ness),,,,,,,,,,,
with your
exquisitely
enchanting
touch –
fully
satiate

commerce

You give
You take away
I adjust
Readjust
thoughts emotions
as creases in my mind’s skin
You keep up
this trade
until I cave in
Then
I let down
my guard
Allow life’s waves to suck
me in…fluid and supple
I blend in

state of mind

 

this caged bird
that is my heart
often beats hard, fast
nursing an old ache
that defies labels
elusive in its
exclusivity
tantalizing
for ever
and ever
