Minikin

A Poem by Mrudula Rani

I opened the front door with my infant son in my arms,
The salesperson asked me if my mommy was home?
I said no, and closed the door keeping calm!

All through the school years of my children,
Wherever I went to, I had to listen to one particular question;
" Hi Suzy, is that your sister?"every one asked often.
Suzy always answered, " No, it's my mother." With a grin!
It did not bother me as such
At 5ft 2in and 110lbs, I could do nothing much...

Even after Suzy went to college she was asked the same question,
But not that often,
By then she didn't need any more of my company.

But one particular enquirer stayed on in our recollections permanent,
We were in a craft store searching for materials for a school project,
Suzy was in high school and already as tall as I then.
" Hi Suzy!" A tall girl greeted my daughter, and asked the usual question.
" who is that?"
" My Mom." Said Suzy.
The young lady enquired;
"Really? How old is she?"

Some folk are just born lucky I guess and seem to remain younger than their years for longer than us oldies think reasonable or fair. If there is more than just a grain of truth here and not just literary talent you are a very lucky lady and mum and poet....I enjoyed Minikin a lot, thank you for sharing.....Neville

It is not much of a luck, so far I haven't won any lottery!
Eternally young, how does it feel.
I suppose if your kids friends start inviting you to parties, you're definitely in.
Though small petite people throughout history have always held powerful positions. Could this be you.?
