#a Wish That Couln'T Be Granted...

Poem By Mamta Agarwal

Joyous and ecstatic,
On the banks of
Mother Ganges,
I didn’t want to look
Over my shoulder,
And wished time
Could stand still,

And with the imprint
Of that moment,
I could just die…
But that is not in
The scheme of things…

For I knew better,
Pain waited in the aisle
With a benign smile…

While tending to the garden one balmy November,
Helping my mother wash the leaves of the dust,
And gently cut off the dead branches and flowers,
Spraying the ones still seeming bright and robust…
