A Poem For My Lovely Daughter

Somewhere here
can, I smell
strongly, its presence
at a distance of
closest approach
or within.
But,
Your quest is
elsewhere MAA!

Your quest is
in the petals of
rose, red red
in your garden
or in the humming of
swarm of bees
searching for nectar.

You try feeling it
in the fragrance
of night jasmine, enchanting
or in the music of
singing birds, melodious.

Your quest in the
soothing touch of moonlight
or dazzling of florety stars.

Somewhere here
Can, I smell
strongly, its presence
But,
Your quest is elsewhere
in the height of sky heading
mountains
or in the depth of oceanic blue
or in the stretches of sky
the infinite.

Your quest
in the mother's love and
delicacy served
or father's care and concern
you longed for.

Your quest in the
bold texts of
the volumes, termite ridden
or in the verses of the
sages canabinoids
exhaled long
ever before.

You tried finding
in the rituals
of the priest bald but hairy
in the holy temples
or in the azan of mulla
in the mosque
or else in the
messages of the popes
from the churches.

Somewhere here
can, I smell
strongly its presence
But,
your quest
in the warmth of
kissing lips
or tight embrace passionate,
You tried feeling
in the warm pinches
among your siblings
or naughty rivalry
among friends.

Your quest
in lovely murmers
at victory
or in anger outburst
at discontent
and disappointment.

your quest
elsewhere
in the commodities
priceless in the metro malls
or in the garments gorgeous
and modern.

Your quest is
In the veins rupture
in the game Blue whale
or in the
thrilling and feeling
of the poems.

Your quest in the
color of your
paint brush.

Your quest is
in the distance
of telescope
or resolution of
microscope,
your quest is elsewhere.

Somewhere here
can I, smell
strongly, its presence.

But,
SORRY MAA!
I don't have
a compass or road map
to your quest.

Neither it is
in my loving lap
nor in the velvety sleep
of your dreams.

Somewhere here
can I, smell
strongly, its presence
at a distance
of closest approach
or within.

But,
your quest is
elsewhere MAA!
