April 1st 2017

Today brings no joy
My face closes shut
After
a good soak

~
Plethora
Of emotional
Highs lows
Run gamut

~
You’ve left
yet you adhere
In sighs of regrets
Panned joys

~
Had you
Lived you’d
Have been full
of pride and joy

~
Your herd
has flourished
Nourished
By love…

~
Ever thankful
For in hand I gently
release you as I did
before in holy waters

~
I hope
your soul
Is finally at peace
Burdens load-shed

~
I bid adieu
once more
On this first day of April
When you were born
~

mixed nuts

From a family
of mixed nuts
this face
often
takes
me
aback
~

sensory memories

~
grieving smiling
in turns I recall
her tiny quick
culinary fixes
and suddenly
my morning
takes on an extra
glow as if I was
with her…..
~
pressing another
head of a clove
with index thumb
into my second
cuppa already
cardamon flavored
I smile and weep
in returns…a love like
ours has a life of it’s own
~
I’ve tried to drown my sorrows in tea, but they are strong swimmers……

irrational

irrational
acts still my digits
gently tappings
MacBook keys
I
chide myself
shaking head
when did
duplicating
images
of loved ones
bring them back
from dead?
wistfully hugging
self I feel moistened
by reminisced love
she’d so generously
showered and
my eyes
mist over again
and again
never quite
drying
and I suddenly
feel warmed
inside out
on this very
chilly December
morning
~
with my beloved late aunt (chaachi) who showered much love on us after we’d lost our mom

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
