Adrift


A nearby river in Hartford. Photo taken by daughter.

As I fell into a river

And was soon adrift

My brother pulled me out

He was really very swift

Rescued me from drowning

Gave back my life as a gift

Hospitality

True hospitality is when your hosts greets you with genuine smiles that puts you totally at ease. Whatever is available, and shares it with you. You feel that they are delighted at having you with them.

Your heart is warmed with their love, and generous hospitality.

Before I Leave


Don’t want to die alone

Would like my children to be there

In my final hours

Before I leave, and depart elsewhere 

Will they be there? Or not?

It’s a harrowing thought

Or, I will breathe my last

Dying alone

Maze

I have been driving in Houston since October, but the roads still seem a maze to me. The worse thing is I keep forgetting the names, or keep mixing them to the annoyance of Son. He relishes it when he can count it as one mistake. Ten mistakes– and I have to make him a dish of baked chicken drumsticks.

We had to buy some gifts. While returning home, Son asked me the usual question, “What is this road called?” Answer was “Ah aa a!” He was gleeful. Nola (daughter) is on a very short visit to us (she saw her brother after a gap of two years). She advised me, “Stall! Don’t answer immediately. Wait till you can see the name, then answer”.

Next time, I will try her advice.

She reminded him, “Mama is almost nineteen years older to you. Wait till you get there, then I am going to ask you”. 

Son forgets names of friends mostly, but I am too nice a person to rub it in.

Pursue

Holding onto fork I pursue, and chase

Attempting within the space

Can’t catch with all my efforts 

My endeavor is in vain

The last piece of pineapple 

On my plate it’s likely to remain
