Treasure Island

Arti Chopra

(16 Nov 1953 / Jammu)


Contentment and peace
Shines bright
Sits so right in
Those wistful eyes
Eyes now restful
The healing touch of a gaze
and filled with love
Hands knotted
With life's many labours
Fold and join
In a greeting
Filled with peace and humility
Her voice
Resonating with much
love in a sweet
Her voice

Sings me a song
So pure and true
That I think she gives me
More than my due
Snowy white hair
Frames a face
So very dear
A fear......
scary and real
Washes over me
When I see
Her bird like, light body
Weary and twisted
With the scarring imprint of
Old age
A fear so real
When I force myself to
Imagine a life
My mother

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
