My Mother, Above All Others.

It is said that the Heaven lies beneath your mother’s feet, which is undoubtedly true as there is no other place than a mother’s lap where you lie down your head in happiness and in times of blue. Her love is incomparable, invaluable and unforgettable. Over the years, a number of poets and writers have expressed love for their mothers in various forms; however, there is always more left to be written and left to be pondered about the God’s greatest creation. My mother, like every other mom, is a perfect woman when you look at her through my eyes because she knows me like no other. She isn’t only a woman who gave birth to me and reared me up but she’s a sculptor who has carved out my personality. Being my closest ally who has always been there during my tough times, she’s the one who always puts me to sleep hushing the demons in my head and she sings the perfect lullaby. She is a tour guide showing me what ways to follow and what to avoid during the course of life. She’s a mind reader who knows what’s bubbling in my mind and before I may express, she comes to know of the whole story. She loves me for who I am even though I may not be a perfect daughter. I seem to have summed up my love for her in a passage of a few words that is too less but my mother’s love for me is unfathomable and limitless.

Happy Mother’s Day!

The Damsel’s Morning Delight.

As the sun triumphs over the duskiness of the ebony night
Blushing the sky with colors vanquishing the deepest dyes
The damsel lying under the covers slowly opens her sleepy eyes
To the beauty unseen before; the purity of the morning delight
She reaches out to the window and pulls the curtains aside
Listening to the melody of the chirruping birds outside
And somewhere back in the memory, there’s an echo of a distant guy
Whose abode is the neverland and who travels to the wonderland each day to cry
To cry out to the birds in the wild blue skies
To play the divine symphony for the damsel and to fly
What a day it is! She thinks and she shyly smiles
Is this a new dawn, a reality or a fable that would soon die
The dewy tears run down her cheeks, she wipes them off and sighs
Leaving the riddle unsolved and open
The riddle behind the damsel’s morning delight!
This poem is dedicated to a wonderful friend (also known as the incredible hulk by his loved ones) who inspired me to write after a long hiatus. And let me thank Kerrie for allowing me to use one of the beautiful images from her creative collection.

Happy Reading!
