Raj Arumugam


take mother-love to all


the Mother takes
the child
to the creatures
and to the beauty of the world
and she bids the child
see and listen to each


the moon says to the child:
be radiant, shine like me
with love


the flower says:
laugh, laugh joyously
like me


the bee says to the child:
be light, be light and easy
as bees in a garden


the grass says,
the grass sings to the child:
be easy, be supple
as me and my mates on the yards
and in the fields


the ocean waves to the child,
the ocean hums:
include all, embrace all,
contain all
as I do within me


the sky says,
the clouds dance to the child:
be wide, be limitless
as the wide, wide blue sky
on which we clouds sail


and the Mother says
to the child who listens,
whose heart is not closed:
love all creatures
love all beings;
take the mother-love
to every existence,
with no exception
to every form of life

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
