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

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
