When Old And Young Are Together - Poem by Savita Tyagi

Playing around
Little boy and grandma
Talk ceaselessly
Some time to each other
Some time above themselves
Their strings of imagination weave
A web beyond the spheres of reality.

*******************

For the sake of old times
Grandma goes on slide
Sitting behind two year old.

Her screams brought by sudden
Fright and sheer joy took toddler
By surprise.....
Scared and distraught two year old
Puts his little hand decisively
On Grandma's round belly.

No! Grandma! No go on slide!
Effectively ending grandma's next round
Of thrilling return to childhood!

    Little boy and grandma
    Talk ceaselessly and painting this imagery you paint our childhood days to gossip with grandmother. Effectively ending grandma's next round
    Of thrilling return to childhood! Very wise and interesting poem shared definitely.....10
