Mamta Wathare | 2 Poems + Visual Art


Grandma Moon 

You left too soon 


And the skies have been falling softly

In little pieces, since 


I have watched the stars 

For a single twitch 

A turn, a murmur of  you 


And I’ve heard 

I’ve heard

Inside my inside ears 


I’ve heard you say,

‘I never left’


But my heart, Grandma Moon 

Has melted into a cold winter noon

And the skies have turned silent


Winter seeps into my bones 

As if a blossom rose with thorns inside 

The sun seems far 

It has seemed so for a while 

You and I have a long way to go, more than a million miles 


We are born of a warm soil

Where hearts often turn cold 

Love is nothing, if not bold

It kept us warm in the middle of a rife 


The blossom rose has bloomed this winter 

That should tell us everything 

About love and about life
