A Scientist -Home Maker

My mom is a brilliant home maker,
she thinks like a scientist,
she keenly  observes animal earth and sky,
she asks good questions to me wondering,
how and what and why,
she makes smart guesses,
hypothesing what might happen and when.

She does cool experiments also while cooking and house keeping,
sometimes she tests my scientific thinking also by asking many,
smart questions to me which makes me think deeply,
that also clears my fundamental about life.

She makes the best use of smart phone,
she records pictures of nature and cooking procedures,
she thinks all through what she has done in a day,
drawing conclusion about what she should have done,
wondering, asking, trusting and concluding;
is a way of her simple and graceful life,
this is what scientists also do.

My mother tells me ,
if you want to be a woman scientist you must do what I do,
I ask myself why mother is called just home maker,
doesn’t she deserve title of scientist- home maker.
