Pritha's pomes

Some rhyme, romance and a wee bit reason maybe, bear with me ?

A Mother’s Wish…


a painting...

Doe eyed and beautiful, your soft glance
Endearing and enduring, your little stance.
Mesmerized, you watch fairy tales unfold,
Awestruck, you are, by all the little stories told.

I wish you innocence in your vision of the world
I wish you wisdom as each of its chapters unfurl

I wish you kindness to give and not just receive
I wish you patience for the moments that make you heave

I wish you love, the kind that opens your soul.
A heartache or two that makes you whole.

Doe eyed and beautiful, may your soft glance always endear
Mesmerized, may you watch life’s chapters without fear
Awestruck, may you be, by the power of your own heart
May you finish with grace, every journey you ever start.

Professionally have I OD'd on OD ( organizational development ) for over a decade and more . Personally, I am all about making the mundane a wee bit more meaningful and of course a lot more fun in the process. In the course, of course, I very often fall flat on my face, but the joy of getting up makes it worth the "trip" ! Visit, explore, and do write back what you thought, and why you will come back again or never ever; either way I am grateful you dropped by ! Am quite a scatterbrain which is synonymous with being a Saggittarian, so don't take me too seriously; I try not to :) on most of my sensible days. On "other" days, I have more than enough very very well meaning well wishers, who do that for me and land me safely back to earth ! What would I do without them I wonder ? And then I pause, and I often ponder. For all the times I haven't let them be, How on earth would they feel, they were saner than me? Arguably and not so humbly yours... Pritha PS: And yes.. a new mom at 41 is my new identity and I am writing a new chapter with my little girl one gurgle at a time...

  1. This will definitely find a place amongst my most loved and often read pieces. Thanks a lot for sharing. Haven’t heard a mothers blessing and love portrayed in a better way than this in a very long time.

  2. Spoken from the core of your heart….loved it immensely!
