Mother And Son Poem by Ruta Mohapatra

Mother And Son



I did not see the king
But a sad, lonely man
His heart in his eyes
Lost in his grief
Crushed under it

All the years rushed
Backward and backward
To when it all began
With soft cooing words
And warm loving arms
The moments of pain in between
Dissolved in a moment

All a memory now
Till they begin again
Some other time
At some other place
The umbilical cord
Remaining invisible but strong
