Reverie

 
(for my late mother: Kesari)*
 

Let us share
if you would
so dare
Fruits of
this Blessed Earth

 
Nature gave us
Plenty
WE invented
Dearth

 
*
 
If you
would spare
in largesse
bare
 
And give
a hoot or two
 
Misery
Would be
history
life a bit
more fair
 
Be Trustee
Not an
overlord

Of rill rood
and air
 
Live in
sociability
empathy
and care
 
*
 
No One is
Your Enemy
No Nation
Is your Foe

 
But give
the giving heart
free range
let go where
it will go
 
It will
to the Eden
of our dreams
where benedictions
overflow

 
* on her 108th birthday
