'NAMASTE' - by Nishu Mathur


by  Nishu Mathur, India

A heart that salutes
and greets
hands come together
palms touch
as in prayer
and fingers meet

Head lowered
a slight bow
with respect due
a gesture that reads
The spirit in me honours
the spirit in you

A welcome to the young 
and old alike
to a guest, a friend
anyone who might
walk your way
a word when parting too..
when it's time to leave
turn and bid adieu

A simple word
yet has much to say
a word that wishes you well and hopes 
you'll have a beautiful, blessed day
