gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

Mother and mother


Keep a stone of five kilo
In your belly for at least nine months
And say what a mother is!
Create a thing, keep its maintenance,
And save it from all odds and danger
And say how difficult the duty of a mother is!
Mother is more than any God,
A girl child is the mother of your future, my dear
How you are keeping her that depends upon your nature.
Be cautious, and save your own future,
Don't darken your own place, time and life
By mis-utilizing, by destroying your own mother.

    A mother is not a stone bearer,
    but a molten love boon bearer,
    be it a rape baby
    be it a love baby
    all but she can do
    is to milk from heart and hand
    A mother is not what you imagine
    she is what God himself is
    she borne out of his own image
    she bears the cross of pain in glee and tears remorseless.........................

    A mother is more of a liquid heart
    a temple of delicacies and love unconditional
    yet, all who give birth are not motherly
    as emotions are dying fast, or eating the mortal quickly.......................

    As usual, no poetry, but some useful thought...............in a logic way, easy to understand thing...............the imagery is...............................really I wish some distant day you would write some real poetry.......................I dont agree that what is being written is poetry.................not that it has to be Tennyson or Wordsworth or this or that, but because you are not trying to write it like that, you are just dressing a girl kid with rough boyish dresses and cutting her hair rude and bald....................u can if you allow her to grow her hair and clad her in girls dresses...............................everything is expression.................but poetry is a soft expression with appeal from the heart to the heart............................a frank comment....................................hope u dont get annoyed...............I trust...............

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
