Mother Earth - Poem by Govind Ramakrishnan

As the grey skies
Purge
Soft white flakes
On Mother Earth
And carpets her,

It's as though
The celestials
Pay
Obeisances
To this wellspring
Who excels in
Giving

And give
She does
Without
Being asked,

Showering her
Compassion and love
On all creation,
As only
A mother can
