I hear a call
 not far away
“amma” “amma”
in full throat.

I turn around
find none,  
hear the call again,
it startles.

I get little shaken
as the voice 
sounds gruff
with an unusual drawl.

Oh! there I see a cow,
strolling, making   noise,
similar to “amma
The word is universal.

It is “amma” in our region, 
ma in the western.
the syllable ma allows 
no more  extensions

“amma”   being an embodiment 
of love, grace, more 
of  compassion,  pronouncing 
itself place one in bliss.
