FULFILLED PROMISE OF HEAVEN A treasured time of nine months, an idyllic bonding intimacy in the cushioned bowery tranquility I was glued to you, like a pearl in an oyster. I was filled with greenness of life by your nourishing red blood I heard the music of life, in the sacred silence of your womb…. The meeting place of our souls is intact though the physical cord is cut. Every imprint of mine, was pressed into your heart the earth to which my feet are still bound, though I stepped out in a hypnotic rhythm of life when my time was on the move.. to lead a life of my own..!! In my breath In my joy In my courage In my consciousness In my goodness, In my belief In my freedom You drape me, cocoon me, surround me You stand fixed, like your smiling image, in my infant gaze when earth looked small and our love loomed large. Mother, for me, you are a fulfilled promise of Heaven.
