Reliving Childhood

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.
