Mom-in-Law.

Sushila Krishnkant Parikh. Saryu coming to the USA. 10/1969
My personal experience. At our first meeting; Ammi put her hand on my shoulder and said, “I choose you.” From that moment to the end…there was love and more love between us.

Mother-In-Law
A half-moon smile through the half-opened door,
On the other side was me, met the in-law enemies.

I showed off smart, but was shaking in my heart.
I could deal with the rest but his mom was a test.

She hugged me with caution; I felt her emotion.
Her few funny words said  where he belonged.

She was trying her best to share her cozy nest,
To cope with the man she still sees like a child.

I rendered my respect, a mom-in-law would expect,
Many moons by her side, we put the flaws aside.

The circle of siblings had very warm feelings, 
The winsome sound in us humming all around.

Open heart, open mind, give and take to remind,
Best of all, his gentle mom loved me like her own.

This relationship can grow deeply reach, if there is essence of respect and patience. Comment: Saryuji, congratulations for all the efforts you have put in to enjoy the self…the creations will die out some day…but the efforts placed to evoke the self from within will travel a long in the journey of life. You are blossoming in this art of expressing self with the medium of poetical words…Wish you a still higher achievement in this field.

સાસુ
અરમાનોના  આંગણથી  હવે  પાછી  નહીં ફરવાની,
અષ્ટકોણના  અંજળમાં   હું  ત્રિકોણ   થઈ  તરવાની.

પ્રેમળ માતા દ્વારે  ઉભી,  ચિંતિત  નવલ  નીરખતી,
” લાગે  છે  તો સારી,  રાણી   નિવડે   વખાણવાની”.

ગરવે   ગુંથ્યા   માળામાં    નવનીતને   નોતરવાને,
અંગ  અંતરના  અંકુરને  ફરી  શીખતી  ઓળખવાને.

મારા   મીતવાની   માતા  છે, અતૂટ  રય   સમજીને,
એકબીજાના  અવગુણોને    હસતાં   મૂક્યા    તજીને .

મારો   પ્યાર   મળે   માતાને,  એનો  ઝરમર  વરસે,
ઉષ્માની આ અવળી ધારા  અવલ અકલ્પિત વરસે.

સંબંધોના   શ્રાવણમાં   સાસુ,  માં   બની    ભીંજેલી,
અરધે   રસ્તે   હાથ   મીલાવી  આવી  સાથ  મળેલી .

યાદ    કરૂં    એની    માતાને   માન   પ્રેમ    સંતોષે,
વહુ   દીકરી   સાસુ   માતાની    મનોમંજરી    મહેકે.
