Mother Goddess

by: Puja Shah

strong woman

inner divine

true feminine…

search your brown hued eyes in the mirror

as reflections reveal


your heart and hands are the pillars

of a family you spend countless

seconds minutes days years

putting first.

in turns of spoons in pots

strokes of palm on foreheads

brushed lips of love on falling tears…

you are the essence

of their forward

and they

breathe it in

your sweet glances

strong words

silent heart

Devi of all

mother goddess.
