Relatives other than my mother have lived with me
How could I do anything except what mom did...Read More

My Wish for Her
I wish for my daughter
The greatest capacity for love.
I wish that she finds strength
Most can only dream of
I hope that she loves
With reckless abandon
Sharing faith and compassion
Always at random
Spreading joy where most needed 
Teaching others how love is seeded

To follow a Divine mandate

Without a fright

its behaviors so thoughtless and vile

Abandoned Me
It all started when I was three
You just left me, 
to be free?
That was selfish if you ask me.
How could you just simply flee?
How could you just abandon me?
I can’t just merely be...
Can’t you see?
You broke me!!
I can’t be who...Read More

Oh yes! For the young girl
Who just landed on Mother Earth!

Or the other one who just turned nine

Neighbour’s or friend’s daughter
She is like a flower

Happy 88th Birthday Mum
Throughout my life you've cared for me
In oh so many ways.
You were my Florence Nightingale
Way back in childhood days.

And nestled in your cosy lap
I'd readily engage
With captivating stories as
Your voice lit up each page.

As we silently walked,
Our minds clearly set,
Upon the task ahead.

No one imagined,
Nobody thought then,
Jane could be dead,
Before we caught the men.

like a beating 
fleshy molusc

unfurling like 
the darkest 
Blood Red Rose

sits stoic enthroned 
an etheric Pearl

On it is written

Oh the elegance of diamonds

If only urban elastics 
Thin pink veil and silk ribbons 
Stepping light, I cast...Read More
