The House

The house

Built with

Stone, wood and brick

Cemented relationship


Neither brick nor stone,

Wood or cement

Were informed

Of the union;

An arrangement

That meant

Need to someone

And requirement

To another.

A resolution to connect,
I took on New Year day
To connect, really connect;
To hear their voices,
Recollecting their facial expressions,
To Feel the happiness and share the memories,
From some teachers to friends…
I had to hear them all.
A “Hello”, a message of
“Very kind of you to have remembered…”
My teachers’ said.
A “Hello”, a message of
“Hey, I have all the time for you…”
My dear friends’ said.
Years without communication, yet connected
My heart and soul in harmony….

Frames on the wall

Four generations.

Great grandfather worked with the British

Grandfather witnessed the World War

And my father was born in pre-Independent India.

My brother and I heard their stories with awe;

History a wonder and life  unimaginable;

The times have changed since then.

Our next generation

Loves the frames on the walls.
