  1. So sincere, warm, loving. Wonderful mountain photo and new, bright look. Such a heartfelt dedication your haiku is. That says a lot. Nice painting with it must say.

  2. Maa is a powerful three letter word especially in India. Hope you have seen the dialog from Deewar movie… the maa one 😀

    Well written 🙂 Short yet sweet.

  3. I love the layers of meaning you have captured in a few short lines here. Your haiku made me stop, think and refocus my attention on mother earth. Thank you.

  4. To think of maa as ‘home’ is amazing – a perspective I haven’t thought much about, I admit, but if I do, I find it so apt. Maa: a place of refuge where you can go hide when you want, and the home you turn to when you’re tired, sad or weary. ❤ A beautiful ode to mothers.
