Frock tales

Weekly writing challenge: Earliest memory

My earliest memory,

takes me back to,

when I was three,

My crazy pink fetish,

driving my mom,

up a tree!

Shopping with me,

 was her worst nightmare!,

I would cling on to a pink frock,

like a leach to your hair!

That still wouldn’t satisfy me,

I would insist on trying it on,

pirouette around and ask,

Why isn’t it twirling,

mom?

performed especially by a ballet dancer

Manoeuvring a Mumbai Market

Image                                    Going to shop
                                        in a bustling marketplace
                                           is a lot like going to war…
 
                                       You won’t get what you want
                                           without a scrape or fight..
        But,
it is entertaining,
even humorous..
in hindsight!
                                                                                         

Hawkers on your left,

Hawkers on your right,

Poor old footpaths..

nowhere in sight!

Ever swelling crowds,

spilling on to the roads,

journey

                         by choice or..
out of
    no choice!
 

You step out of the house,

wondering why the hell on earth,

you chose to go by train,

when of planes, there was no dearth!

You then remind yourself,

At least it’s air-conditioned,

The popular Japanese cartoon character who makes
kids go crazy with his charms…
and mums go up in arms!!

The first time I saw it, I was anything but impressed,

by the kiddish crayon graphics or the emotions expressed!

But something caught my eye, I didn’t know what it was,

till the day I heard a laugh from across the room-

where I was!

The Joys of Walking

For all those
who enjoy
the serene
outdoors …

It’s 7 pm, the weather is great!,

I put on my shoes, don’t wanna be late,

The Lonely Heron

ImageSometimes…
all it takes
is the flight of a bird
to realise
how free we really are…..

He walked alone, all by himself…as if

he owned the entire garden-,

the one behind our house that always looked empty

without children.

He was like our very own solitary reaper-,

going about his work matter of factly,
