Salutation to Mother: Happy Mother’s Day

by Leonard Dabydeen


From that special moment

as conception tickles her womb

Motherhood takes root

like a banyan tree

she’s a nascent woman

pristine in her own castle

all consummate Jai Santoshi Ma

so devoted to happiness, prosperity

void of selfishness, fiery maw

ebullient cooing heartbeat Durga Ma

shakti aur bhakti, ma mukti

Lakshmi mata, Saraswati mata

child in her cocoon you are

migrating in her pulse

she sleeps portraying your dreams

sculpting body, mind and soul

many are nights of bad tales

she strokes your karma

for birth into a new world

always a silent bhajan

aarti her pregnant tummy

her smile an embroidery of faith

her utmost wish mere ma

satyam, shivam, sundaram

glorious joy to the world.
