Strums from Mama’s Heartstrings (Poetry)

Mother & Child

Strums from Mama’s Heartstrings by Veronica Nkwocha.

She tickles me
Her eyes are twinkling
I’m giggling
Her arms encircle me
She’s singing
And then she twirls me.

She holds me, envelops me
I hear her heart beat, thumping
Strums from her heartstrings are echoing
Soft notes from my beginnings
They lull me
Asleep in mama’s arms.

The tinkle of her laughter, awakens me
Soft kisses on soft cheeks, mesmerising
The shine from my beaming smile, sparkling
Mama’s little star is twinkling.
