The Umbilical Cord -- Invisible



Three hours from the last one
the baby had to be fed.
Unusual of all times
the baby , Veda, slept
 Maitiri, the mother was fast asleep
while the hours eloped in speed
milk from Maitiri's bosom
tripped, drop by drop.

Maitiri,slept tired and exhausted.
having stayed awake for long
The milk oozed [sign in to see URL] could feel it
poor one, could not open her eyes
fatigue being more pronounced
 the motherly instincts ignored.


The flow of milk became so obvious
drenched Maitiri's blouse in the course.
she got up in a hurry. Took Veda in her arms
the child fussed over.
Maitiri shook her forcefully
Lazily, the child sucked as slow as it could
the mother could feel the ease.


The flow of milk on time
shows a speciality, a strangeness,
why does it happen?
ask anybody at random
you and I cannot reply in tune
he and they would go tangent

A leading doctor, when asked
went round in circles
with a drawl and a cough planted
ultimately gave a meaningless explanation.
A scientist of fame, when interviewed
was equally ephemeral
with a reference to the scientific formulas
came down with a dilemma
a Hamlet in the offing.

Be it to an intuition
which defies science
discards medical interpretations.
something beyond human knowledge
escapes one's control
emphasizes there is a force above
none knows the fullest
some call as God
others deem it as Nature.

Well, could be in all diligence
one of an unbound love
an unseen link between
a mother and a child
an invisible umbilical cord
an intuition unfathomable
felt considerably by everyone
be you an atheist or a believer.
