A fruit of young love

From the East she was born

On a pleasant January eve.

Her mom was nineteen

and was learning to sing

A lullaby or two to comfort her.

Pop named her Maria Cristina

Inspired by the majestic falls

With exactly the same name.

Pampered and spoiled as a little girl

By grannies, uncles and aunts

Who’d come and play with her.

The name struck as she grew up

It depicts beauty and power too

That upon descent sparks allure.

To Granny’s eyes she’s chubby cute

And that she can’t resist

When she stretched and yawned.

She dispersed sweet enchantment

So she was told and wins the hearts of all

Right from the day she was born.

Once tiny speck brightly bloomed

Through prisms of light and love

Her loyalist clan surrounded her.

Love indeed filled their home

With smiles and laughters combined

And no harm could come about.

It was a pleasure in its fullest measure

Until she left that childhood scene

Leaving family and friends behind.

Now miles away from home

On a journey to see the world

Beneath the blue magical sky.

The memories of the past

Tattooed in her heart

Cemented in her head.

The shadows of yesterday

Are like transparent waterfalls

Lighter and brighter on the other side.

She believed she could

So, she risked and leaped with grace

She traveled the world.

      Hi Crissp,

      A gift of light you shine upon this world of page

      Dazzelled by the rainbow

      Colour

      Phase of life

      So beautiful

      So bright

      So worldly

      So earthy

      A universal soul

      A gift from earth to sky

      Plain human kindness on show

      Loved the poem
