The Leper Mother's Day

a daughter and a son
part of her spiritual pilgrimage
her soul in a decaying fetid cage
eyes as sockets on the surface
she begs with dignity
boran road hill road
in bandra
the queen of the suburbs
her worldly stage
a leper mothers day
on a tattered page
battered hopes
shattered dreams
scattered sorrow
unhealing wounds
unfeeling wounds
time wont assuage
gods will be done
in all humility
no personal hurt
no inner conflict or rage
a tear drop of shame
on my Flickr page

dedicated to all mothers
of all caste color creed and make
those sleeping those awake
some cosmetic some fake
some nursing a heart break
motherhood
metaphoric memories for gods sake
