17/2017: My True Love

I have missed your warm embrace,
How far we have been apart is a disgrace,
the softness in you let me drop my head,
made me think, thankful words can be left unsaid,
Oh dear pillow, I can’t wait to kiss your face!

Day 340: Enigma (Ajith)

Twenty wishes to manage all your contradictions,
like you winning at Risk, is still just a fiction.
Grown from golden arches to golden boy,
you are still a kid who is fun to annoy.
Don’t worry; we will let you keep your grand delusions.

AN: For my nephew, Ajith on the occasion of his 20th Birthday!

I met him when he was two, and his aunt became my sister-in-law. He was obsessed with McDonald’s as a kid, if he saw the golden arches, it was game over. So nowadays, I get my revenge on him in other ways – ways that are fun for me, as an aunt, and traumatizing for him as a teenager (not anymore I guess). Lesson here – Always be kind to your family.

It has been a real pleasure to watch him grow into a talented, sweet and smart young adult.I look forward to seeing how much further and farther he goes 🙂

Day 305: Happy Halloween

Knock knock on the door,
monsters and goblins galore.
Little faces blend in night,
Oh, what a scary sight,
when that baby lion roars.

AN: I am a weird person. Hate scary movies, love Halloween. Terrified of ghosts but love the chill of the Hallows Eve. I am a conundrum, but I am also okay with that.

Day 225: Night at the Movies

With great anticipation and fanfare,
a night with “Suicide Squad” I declared,
rushing to the seats only to see them filled,
“Usher, there is a person in my chair”, I shrilled.
“wrong date ma’am”, he replied with great care.

AN: Inspired (Sadly) by true events. Got tickets for VIP showing of Suicide Squad, only to realize I had got the wrong date 😦 It was sadder for my nephew and sister, who were “trusted” me with  such an important task. I think I am banned from every getting tickets again 🙂
