[Humble submission: This poem with humility consecrated to Sr. Poet Mom Almeda Knight on her 75th birth day 26th April by a wee daughter from India. From whom I received motherly care guidance and support all thro’ especially in my blue poetic days. I’m indeed a feeble poet to glorify poetically any Mom, so the fountainhead of emotion RNT I’d to bow before and owe from ~ niv]

O Dear
Universe captivating
Charming
Mother O Dear
Sun illuminated
Pure earth
Mother of entirety
We salute You.

O Your
Blue-ocean-aqua-sodden
Feet.

O Your
Breeze-quivered-green
Anchala.

O Your
Himalayan-high-head
Kissing the sky
Like
Hoar frosted crown.

Primordial primeval
Descend of dawn
First chanted psalms
Of Sama Veda
From Thine hermitage
We prostrate at You.

Jnana religions
So many verses and tales
First voiced from
Thine abode in woods
We revere You.

E’er gracious virtuous
You’re giver of staples
Everywhere to everybody
Flowing Janhavi Yamuna
Are Your aqueous
Grace galore
We owe from You.

Givers of
Sacred Nectarine
Humor Holy Milk
O Motherhood Troupe You’re
We worship You.

Glossary
[1] Anchala ~ An expanse of a part of or an end of a loin cloth [Sharee] worn by Indian women

[2] Sama Veda ~ [Sans] Sama = Melody. Veda = Knowledge.
Sama-Veda is better known for the precise meter of its poetry…. There are also painstaking instructions in Sama-Veda about how particular hymns must be sung; this is perhaps because great emphasis was put upon sounds of the words of the mantras and the effect they could have on the environment and the person who pronounced them.

[3] Jnana ~ Wisdom

    I especially loved the first stanza flowing into these stanzas. Beautiful symmetry in simplicity. Colour in thoughts with such swift transverses I have not done for a long time.10+++

    Blue-ocean-aqua-sodden
    Feet.

    O Your
    Breeze-quivered-green
    Anchala.

    O Your

    Kissing the sky
    Like

    Givers of / Sacred Nectarine
    Humor Holy Milk / O Motherhood Troupe You’re / We worship You.

    You are simply genius. Improvisation of a certain motherly feeling such a broadscape of natural phenomena could be only possible to a human heart who has experienced life through an infinite light of universe.
    This much I can put to your page after reading it the second times. Morning glory touch your poetic face to bloom another writing to glorify the humanity.
    Thank you poet niv.

    She was smiling
    but her kind voice was stern.
    I felt relieved,
    that she was calm
    wet the sand if comes a storm
    and while upon a dune I stand,
    because across the open plains
    the wind loves her,
    Anchala...........iip

    Mother Earth [ME] and Mother [M] well blended…

    What M imbibes is but from ME… tolerance, love, beauty [smile of M], soothe [shadow under tree in scorching sun], solace [ambiance] and so on

    Poet has well addressed in this poem…and fills heart with joy and warmth and put us in the lullaby nostalgia…

    For Great Mother 10+

    A great Poem and true tribute to a Sr. Poet…

    Here we find blend of ancient wisdom and the then attitudes and adoration towards Mother …

    Like hymns…it flows and flows …touching the inner vibes of readers …

    May commentators have ably …I think needn’t elaborate it…

    Finally I say with the poet 'O Motherhood Troupe You’re/We worship You.’
    Thanks for sharing

    Soul soothing in the backdropp of Vedic vibes…

    How Mother is glorified in India it is a perfect reflection…

    Very well penned [adaptation]

    It can be said exploration of excellence of inner world reached to acme in Vedic thoughts…

    RNT manly influenced [better word imbibed] by this ancient wisdom of Upanishad [‘the Vedanta philosophy developed from the pantheistic views of the Upanishads’] …

    Highest tribute to Mother I’ve ever read
    Thanks Poet Ms. Nivedita for your yeoman’s efforts…
    10++ to all Mothers
