My Mother Writes Poetry

a poem by Avijeet Das

My mother writes poetry
Sometimes on bits of paper
And sometimes in her journal

I can neither match her depth
Nor her skill with metaphors

The other night while we were talking
On the phone about life and writing

She read the lines of her
Poem that she had written

She wrote: the night is a woman
She is wearing a dark black Saree
And the stars are the glitter
On her Saree’s Anchal
