Daughter and Mother

Ganga Leaves the Himalayas, (The Ganges), Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India
At Rishikesh
Where the Ganga
Leaves the mountains
Completing her journey
To womanhood

From the daughter
Roiling and playful
Down the narrow valleys

To the gentle, fertile
Fulsome matriarch
Mother of the plains

Ganga and the Himalaya
Uttarakhand, India
