Once upon a time

When I was a kid

I painted a forest

Lush with the greens

And all kinds of hum & song

Yet somehow it felt empty

Deserted and devoid of life


Today I hear the sweetest melodies

Of a river gushing by

The sound of love & life

Along comes the jingle of anklets

Soft feet treading upon the earth

Tinkling laughter that warms the heart


Who is it that comes this way?

Is that You, Maa?

Have you finally arrived 

To transform this barren forest

Into your Kadamba Vann..

Is that you oh Maa!
