That room which is next to the peacocks , he pointed.
That’s where I will land very soon..
It’s known as the senior class you know..?
I can take you along in the noon..!!
The sister who was elder to him, stood amused,
Adoring the twinkle in his bright eyes.
You need to just grow up cherishing each momen,t she said.
It’s the awareness of the present and not any number that makes you wise..!!
Friends we are, they exclaimed with joy,
Be convinced, you can’t parent us any further.
Dad and you, can now take a break from parenthood
We will make you proud, we promise, dear mother.
I don’t have anything to give you, he said, as I was leaving
But you have been a very nice mother.
So here’s a green bracelet especially made for you,
And like this one you will never find another…!!
Its made up of warmth that mother earth gives us,
And the love that I have for you,
But mom do you think these greens will remain after a few decades,
Save Soil is the only MANTRA from my point of view.
My guide, my mentor my friend for life,
You taught me how to sail smooth n easy and not just strive.
Your aura so magnanimous, , your presence is a boon,
The grace of exuberant sun, the calm of vibrant yet serene moon.
They give us boundless love and joy,
We can live our childhood once again.
Trying to govern them, is like taming the waves,
Be one of them, parenting them all the time, is in vain.
Your inner child needs to be forever alive,
That’s how you can nurture your children with grace,
Else you are just another boss, my dear,
Running in an absurd race!!
Magicians they are, if you let them be,
Children are the latest version of what you are.
Nurture these saplings with love ’cause they come through you,
Being just a nasty parent won’t take you too far.
Vast is the sea and it’s charisma too,
Vast are the waves that are flowing through,
Vast is the sky with its clouds hovering in the blue,
But vastest my angels, is my love for you two..!!
Through the lens of Shivanand
Hug your sunny boy a little longer today,
And kiss him much much more.!
Let him pin all the pretty balloons around
As he counts one, two, three, four..!!
Let him hide his naughtiness,
Behind that innocent smile..!
For he is your little baby,
For such a little while..!!
