Travel Haiku – Laitlum, Meghalaya

Watching me scold our kids
With motherly rants
You continued smiling

In those torrential brawls
When I cried
You eventually smiled

And now as I watch you die
Barely able to hold yourself
You continue to smile
Leaving me in oblivion

Caption taken from my poem “Your Smile – I”
