Grandma's Advice - Poem by Savita Tyagi

When frustrated and stuck in a hole
Pick yourself up with a small goal
Told me my wise old grand mother
Patching a fabric on worn out sweater.

Pick up some small pinning
Make a salad or white pudding
Take a walk, ring up a friend
Fly a kite or do rope jumping.

Simple pleasure and no arrogance
Like zephyr filled with fragrance
Like a blue bird sitting on a fence
Brings beauty and meaning to life.

Staying involved is never easy
Not every company feels cozy
But isolation is more detrimental
Loving life and yourself is essential.

Not every sunrise is glorious
Or each sunset harmonious
Some days are sure lackadaisical
Still life is full of sweet wonders.

    So deeply speculated and nicely depicted. Thrilling expression of real pictures of life through a grandma. The favourite lines are ...... Not every sunrise is glorious
    Or each sunset harmonious

    So true! Yes, some days are dull and so full of problems, but find the gleaming rays of light filtering through the dark. It is the only way to find happiness! Never dismiss the day as distressing or depressing. Take up some pleasurable activity that will help you combat the sense of loneliness and dullness! A very sweet poem with practical tips to make life enjoyable! This poem sounds very much like my poem- 'A Recipe for Living'
