Red dies away in ash. Evolving from mother’s womb to dissolving into the Ganges’ womb is what each of ours’ life is about.

Wondrously began
A life.
Rosy and cosy;
Curled and furled;
Inside her womb,
Until landed
On the mother’s lap.

mothers womb Red Dies Away In Ash

Inevitably ended
The same life.
Sooty and dusty;
Jammed and crammed;
Inside the urn,
Until outstretched
The Ganges’ arms.
