Ma - Poem by Prayag Saikia

An ‘M' and an ‘a' makes ‘Ma'
Ma is the oasis in the desert of life
It's the most adorable phonetic structure in the world
Can at any point of time
Its shadow be lost?
Ma said from the burning pyre
It's freezing cold now
Come nearer
Warm your body
From the morrow
You have so many responsibilities to shoulder


(Translated from original Assamese by Bibekananda Choudhury)
