A Flower To Auroville Mother-17


Marudaani(Henna, Lawsonia inermis)

Inconspicuous on a tiny branchlet a tiny angel
Yet conspicuous with bunchy angels around special
Wing and winged her stamen and sepal four ordinal
Where from, you guess, is she nascent original

Marudaani..droplet of heavenly perfume she is
Most intense and inviting is her sacred redolence
Mirrored flawless in her leafy guard glabrous
What for, you guess, is she born much wondrous

Marudaani..all patterned with a loving heart
Flowery, flowery velvetty nature to impart
All her care of scented nursing fine and smart
How then, you guess, you're drowsy by Henna's floret
