Amma

Amma’s lullabies:
Surely reminiscent to-date
those devotional vibes
even today consecrate

Amma’s nurturing:
Grow beyond the parent
become wise and strong
be alive to live with aplomb

Amma’s parathas:
An unforgettable taste
reminding to chew good
not to be eaten in haste

Amma’s command:
Face the bully squarely
settle scores outside
before returning home

Amma’s family:
Love by being true to yourself
become capable to envelope
everyone in your embrace

Amma’s generosity:
Feel rich by sharing - 
Life bequeaths aplenty
to the one full of caring

Amma’s spirituality:
Love yourself immensely
forgiving upon realization
the involuntary errors

Amma’s mysticism:
Death is inevitable
sleep with gratitude
for the ultimate dawn

Comment The poem honestly captures Amma's simplicity, broadminded vision of life and the practice of wisdom for a lasting happiness. That is why Ammas are the the essence of wisdom. Indeed , it is a tribute to mother.

Comment Very touching composition !c Felt nostalgic with the mention of ' parathas' and 'lullabies'

Amma is epitome of selfless love , care and positivity.
Amma is large hearted,kind hospitable and very talented at the same time.
Her moral values,purity and unshakable faith are so inspiring.
Salute to Amma with all respect and humility.
