Hello you beautiful people! I am an avid reader and I loves to write poetry and short stories for my own sanity and amusement.
Sitting on a charpoy in the veranda
The old man is reading newspaper
wearing big glasses
Unaware of the surrounding hustle and bustle
He is happy with his own company.
The sunlight falling on the veranda
where small pots of flowers are planted
dancing together energetically
making it look more lively
still feels warm in this cold chilling winter
and the birds singing soft melodious song
and the sweet ruffling of wind
makes the whole atmosphere highly-spirited.
Running from inside the house came his grandchild
holding a vibrant kite in his tiny hands
stands near his grandpa and looks with enthralling eyes
The old man being pleased to find a companion
folding his paper, stands with much support of the stick
walks hand in hand with his little buddy
to relive his childhood with an enthusiastic smile.
