Mother - Poem by Neela Nath Das

Her eyes are blank,
Clothes torn, ragged & patched
Beauty has taken renunciation long past;
She has no rank,
wizened and shrunken face-
Tells no story of glamor.
But she laughs
She smiles
She is a MOTHER! !

    nice poem; every mother's face does have a story of glamor, if you look closely through the eyes of her child. (Report) Reply

    Your 'MOTHER' is a beautiful poem. Thanks for this beautiful piece. It glorifies all mothers, like my own, who:
    'Tells no story of glamor.
    But she laughs
    She smiles
    She is a MOTHER! ! '
    I also liked Valsa George's comment.

    A poet touches deep and laconic to tell our Amma...the Gods-es of Earth
    Her eyes are blank,
    Clothes torn, ragged & patched
    Beauty has taken renunciation long past;
    She has no rank,
    wizened and shrunken face-
    Tells no story of glamor.
    But she laughs
    She smiles
    She is a MOTHER! !

    I love this poet for own vision
