What’s it like
to be a mother
do you know?
how soft it is
how deep it is
how swell it is
how warm it is ….
do you know
where the heart beats
at six weeks in the womb ?
do you know
when it kicks
she cries , in happiness ,
the world is within her
at the tiny feet ,
rolling and cuddling
holding on to the cord ,
but soon it is brutally cut
only to release
the bundle to her bosom
her life blossoms ,
she is now the best human
only next to the creator
she is now elevated
she is just a wavelength
which can read eyes
which can measure breath
which can tread in to gait
of the stumbling crawling feet
and soon to release
the empowered wings ,
she can feel
through miles of sea and land
her prayers always
answered by the Supreme ,
lest He knows
its tough to win
as this woman is now a mutant
she is a Mother
she is a Super Power …….

    No , I do not know what it is to be a mother : which is precisely why this poem is so thrilling . Within a few lines it gives you the inside story of what it’s really like to be a mother . Well written , Swati Gadgil
