A New Weekend - Poem by Ravi Upadhye

Another week end stares into my face,
Its easier this time since my daughter's weekend with us occupies the mind space,

She would make sure the oldies have a lot of fun,
Like old times when we pulled each others leg one by one,

She would make loving demands
Making us remember everything children ask in many ways

The magic rainbows will open in seven colours magnificent and grand
Dancing all over in my home in musical harmony with a magical band

It would be a riotous celebration
Of youth exchanging the drab colors of life to bright sparkles a million

The flash of this blaze will leave a trail behind
Keeping us going for many more days till monotony is again to unwind

She would know its time to return
To refuel the old souls with some more energy to last one more turn

Thats the beauty of union of old and the young
Keeping the joyfulness intact despite loneliness and long days so badly stung

    In my mind, nothing is better than the joy our children to our life. The sound of their laughter, especially their giggles...they are the sound of life and living. (Report) Reply
