The Essence…

Each dawn brings with it a gift of a new day,

 spectral rays paint the earthen canvas with vernal colors.

Seasonal changes alter the composition

yet, weaves a cohesive mural of the landscape,

singing a song of nature’s soul.

Today I walk down the memory lane

when your birth brought in unbridled joy.

Iridescent hues of your facet brightened my life.

Despite the differences, our bond matured with a homogenous spirit,

singing a song of enduring love.

 Nature, whose visage keeps changing with time, showcases a different seasonal look. Yet from its soul, emanates the same essence of organic feel. Likewise, the relationship between a mother and daughter has streaks of emotional highlights. They may have their moments of ups and downs, yet they are bound together by a strong bond of love. Time may change their look and perspective, but in both cases, their soul sings the same song.

  1. Essence of the beauty of nature so well composed, Radhika. I completely agree the bond between daughter and mother is very different from a son. There is a saying that goes, Daughter is daughter throughout her life but a son is a son till he gets a wife.

  2. I love this poem. I have recently realised that I’m more inclined to my mother in means of emotional bond. These days I give her a lot of advice since she shares everything that happens at her workspace. It’s more like a daughter caring a mother, things have changed so much.

    So beautifully written ❤️

    1. That is so nice to hear Hema. I guess when daughters grow up, they become more of a friend with their mother. They understand things from a woman’s perspective and connect better at an emotional level. Thanks dear and keep that bond with your mom going strong ❤️
