A Flower To Auroville Mother-33 - Poem by Indira Renganathan

Lavender, (English lavender, True lavender
Lavandula angustifolia,)
(Feather-leaved Lavender, Lavandula bipinnata)

She's a queen from far afar
An allayer for heart as nectar

Lavendula sisters are many
Known in common only came to me

Just came as a guest on a visit
Got implanted in mind the best

Purplish hale on spikes in whorls
Purple pale petals up in flutters

Why she cringes to sharp leaves
May be, helps herself, saves fragrance

Yes, her scented bulk proves her ilk
Our mind and body not to sulk

Just a breath of hers I breathe in
Pain free I'm taken out of sin
