Mother and Child

She caresses him
With her warm eyes
Relishing the softness
Of his tender skin
She drinks the very sight
Of his slender, infant body
She holds him close
To her breasts
Enveloping him with
All the snugness she can exude

His fragile hands
His eyes closed
Peace on his face
Unmindful of the madness of this world
A tiny bundle
Of her love
A miracle
A marvel.
Gift of god
A child is born
To a mother
Born out of the recesses
Of her own being
Nourished by the throbs
Of her own heartbeats
Cradled by the
Intangible web of her own dreams
A child is born
To a mother

Raising an ordinary mortal
To the cult of a mother

She looks at him
Again and again
Savouring the beautiful wisp of life
Who has come through her

The feelings surmount
“I am a mother”
She wants to scream
And tell the whole world
Nothing else matters
Pride glistens in her eyes

“me and my child are the universe”
“now & ever”
