A Flower To Auroville Mother-1 - Poem by Indira Renganathan

My Flower Series

I am not a botanist, but an admirer of nature specially flowers.
For the following series of flower poems, I did refer a lot.
For that matter wherever I went I looked for the area flowers
pressed and preserved them for my study and review which has helped me a lot.
I humbly dedicate these flower poems to the Mother of Auroville.
I hope my efforts will be appreciated and remain a useful reference.
I repeat I am not a botanist.

Indira Renganathan

Thaamarai(Indian Lotus-Nelumbo nucifera)

She's the heart of an elemental body
Soft, soft and soft in healing peace
So deep in mire and muck sown muddy
Yet triumphing petaled in manifold blossoms
Pink and blue and white refreshing and sunny

She's the heart of an elemental body
Soft, soft and soft in gospel silence
So deep in twirls and swirls of mayic petalody
Yet triumphing petaled in enlightened bliss
Bright and right and straight to the Almighty

    Dear Poet,

    I deviate from my usual style of commenting with rhymes
    As i have to write a few more than the rhymes.

    I read your poems on Mother sometimes back
    Coldn't comment due to my own reasons of time etc etc.
    But it was there in my mind that i should read and commnet one by one...

    'Consciousness beyond Mind'... the theme of Mother
    I love her since my first visit to Auroville...
    Her preaching are superb and consoling...

    I read a few books on her then.. but later got drifted
    in the usual flow of life.. time.. semnses etc..
    To be frank with you.. reading your poems on mother
    has rekindled my interest to revisit her palce and thoughts.

    First of all thanks for this inspiration.

    And your composition astound as usual...
    I will comment one by one...

    Thnak you for sharing.

    Nice poem and good writing...hearts of the mothers are large enough to surround
    all children and the only real love in life.
