I just now read Suzi's Write Tribe's unique idea of writing
whatever comes to mind. The first thought which came to my mind was 'my home'.The home which is my nest, my life, and my succour Wherever we go, when ever we go, we wish to be back home. Many a times we wish to go for an outing for some days,but once away from home we yearn to be back home. Our own abode! There is a popular saying,'the heart is where the home is'. It is literally true in my case. I love my home, my corner, and my belongings.
We built our house with great enthusiasm, devotion, zeal and emotion. All our life's savings we happily spent on the construction of our dream house. When the house was completed my exuberance and exhilaration knew no bounds. My husband's love for gardening got an impetus. We have more than five hundred plants, which he tends with great care and passion.On the roof top we have planted flowers. On the back side is 'kitchen garden' where we have grown tomatoes, brinjal,cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, lemons, guava pomegranates and many other plants.It is very fulfilling to see the plants growing. In the balconies, we have placed potted plants.
Here is a small poem, which I wrote when my grand daughters were here. Now both of them are pursuing higher studies. The elder one in USA and the younger one in the college hostel.
A home that was in my dreams
Its dream no more, its my nest
A look at it makes my eyes gleam
A wish fulfilled, it is the best.
Its here we lead happy hours
Chirping of little ones gleefully
Dancing, singing, in rainy showers
Mom and daughters enjoy freely.
Flowers of all hues and shades
Planted tenderly with love and care
With an ornamental green canopy
Swaying merrily on the roof garden.
Hubby and me lost in old memories
Soft divine music,manna for the soul
An old couple, he and I, playing cardEnjoying each moment in our dream.
