My Mother’s Smile

O Rukmini, consort of 
Dyapa Gopal Reddy
What do you find
So delightful in your eighties
When you are barely able to walk
With the threat of
Confinement to bed
For you to smile so
While all around you
Us four siblings are so glum!!
I truly cannot fathom
That delight on your face.
