Gallery

    Saffron orange strands in tiny scoops. 
Would Amma like to season rice?
Orange marigolds swing over doors –
Swish, swish! Should I make her a garland?
    Lotus pink shimmering fresh.
Would Amma like dewy buds?
Pink sweets soaked in ghee –
Yum, yum! I'll come back for my treat.
    Indigo blue waves to me,
Soft cotton like Amma's sari. 
Blue bangles sing and chime –
Clink, clink! Like amma's lullaby.
