A tale of a Stone

By Aparna Bandyopadhyay

When I opened my eyes to the world,

there were the echoes

of brass bells,

And the melodious notes flowed

From pearly conch shells.

When I crawled up on my feet,

I saw the mute stone

of heavenly fame.

That's 'God' said mother

With a million Royal names.

When I was on my learning spree

That lifeless stone

Glowed with a Godly hue,

You said, 'twas my imagination,

But it felt so right and true.

When my journey took me far,

That stone was sitting

In silent dust

Faith was now in my heart

It was a stone, from just a hurst.

When I am reached my twilight years,

That stone has found

Its pride of place,

Mother's voice is heard again

'God' I see on His stone face!
