Age

— Maya Nair

Imagining “then” now
Imagined “now” then
the mother’s sari
wrapped well on her, then.
and  arranged on me, now.
a glimpse to then
and a  wrinkle in making
on the curtain of now
illuminating a story of our
delights, battles and boundaries
sari adorning different bodies
sings a passing and an extended song
like the carefully long tucked in pleats
to surround our soul.
occupying our hearts with black, white,
colors of rainbow and clouds
a rhythm in proceedings of life
she and I conveniently comprehend.
straight, twisted, zigzagged play of lines
painting, releasing an adventure of age
that we envision at different times.

One thought on “Age

  1. Howdy! This article couldn’t be written any better!
    Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept talking about this. I am going to forward this article to him.
    Fairly certain he’ll have a great read. Many thanks for sharing!
