In Praise of Woman, by Rajani Kanth

In Praise of Woman, by Rajani Kanth

When nature wreaked
her worldly forge
Not seeking to
unhand

Her secret sibylline
envisionings
Within  celestial
plan

She weaved a plume
Of ether
Wrought of
Northern lights –

mingled scents of’
Araby
Spice of Indic
land

Next infused
an urn of tears
culled from
A maple tree

Tinctures of sweet
ambrosia
Stole from the
honey bee

Surveyed her ornate
tour de force
needed else
besides

She gilt the lily
Glistered gold –
let nurture, free,
abide

heart of  gentle
baby roe
nestling in  the
braes

care of a watchful
dolphin
as her calf ,
heedless, plays

courage of afric
lioness
peace from the
playful fawn

drams of diurnal
patience drawn
of dogged beaver
clan

thence was art
met with entropy
mortal with
immortal span

pride, spirit,
solace:
nay, the demi-urge –
of this family
of (wo)Man.
