My mother’s lipstick

Sometimes in sheer memory

I glide on smoothly

a matt finished lipstick

on my skin.

The color maroon

one November afternoon

I see through the mirror

the woman I have known

or reflection of my own.

Not any other

I see my mother

wearing Her lipstick

that compliments Her style

Her beautiful smile.

Miss you mom. 💝

Dedicated to all ladies 😉
—————————–
It’s time for the ladies to take up the stand
If you wanna a man, fall hard again
Lemon & yogurt & ginger garlic paste
Grill it up with love on a hot grill pan
 ———————————————-
Simmer a bit jealousy until just tender
 Spice up with onions for him to surrender
Tandoori Masala is not what you need
Cooked boneless chicken with tomatoes underneath
———————————————-
Frying pan alas will have the magic done
Will deep fry the anger, until golden
Some cabbage & carrots then garnish alight
And see the emotions thinly sliced
 ———————————————
Toasting the buns with a little bit butter
Will make him drool & dance a better
Try not forgetting a chutney along
So that you reside in his heart for long.
