Ode To a Beloved Sister!

a poem by Drsudarsan Damodar Prasad, India


You are the daughter
Of sunlight;
Bundle of joy-
Ever since you arrived-
On my mother's lap,
Wrapped in innocence!

Your eyes serene-
Like the deep sea,
Vast ,blue and fathomless;
Your eyes only reflect-
Your listless brother:
Ordinary and commonplace,
Snorting like an angry bull-
At the world's market place,
Full of touts,
Buyers and sellers!

Your calming presence,
Like a cool morning breeze,
Soothing the work worn shoulders,
Drooping with the burden of existence

Your caressing fingers
Soothe the pain
And anguish of every loss,
your soft voice like-
The fall of a dew drop,
Blooming the flower of a happy human
Helping him to break,
the fetter of the -
Animal -sensuous man!

Thank God, for a sister!
I am richer,
Every time I remember,
You face full of grace,
Epitome of feminine grace,
A veritable Goddess in disguise!
