Cats Are Cats
Finally, I returned to my native land
And the dinner was all set,
Sweet aroma filled the kitchen.
"Thank God for my mother's skill, " I prayed.
Everybody so delighted to get together
And the air was consumed by stories.
But deep within me, I felt something absent.
I couldn't figure out what until
I saw her coming towards the table,
Gaining unsteady step, not like before.
"How comes she is crippled? " I enquired
Adding another story in the noisy table.
"Bullet wounds. Probably someone
Caught her red-handed.
Cats are cats. ...
In quiet hours of night,
Away from daily preoccupation,
I pause and reflect childhood memories.
Those faint remnant memories when draw closer
Fetch smiles and laughter, and goose-pimples.
Connected with nature's infinite wisdom,
Its varied flora and fauna, and avian life,
We learned things other than obligatory lessons.
Nature taught us to value each creation.
