The deck of an ancient ship. At the right of the stage is the mast, with a large square sail hiding a great deal of the sky and sea on that side. The tiller is at the left of the stage; it is a long oar coming through an opening in the bulwark.
Only teaching on Tuesdays, book-worming
in pajamas fresh from the washer each morning,
I hog a whole house on Boston's
"hardly passionate Marlborough Street,"
Never love a simple lad,
Guard against a wise,
Shun a timid youth and sad,
Hide from haunted eyes.
I wanted to be a Jane Austen - or Elizabeth, her favourite strong girl,
or Kadambari - A poet's dream, from Bengali Literature.
a few fearless women -
Romeo and Juliet
Loved each other much
But for their family's sake,
Kept out of touch.
To My Granddaughter...
I’ve traveled paths you’ve yet to walk
Learned lessons old and new
Dark clouds on the horizon
As the family assembled
In their ancestral home to
Visit their octogenarian Mother
I feel sad as sadness could be
Cause I'm afraid that one day
I may not be able to say
To my grandchildren
Daily at the crack of dawn
He would sit in his armchair
Sipping a cup of
Cloyingly sweet tea
Our granddaughter's playing soccer again…she's the goalie on her team
and in some ways as I watch her…it's like I'm reliving a dream….
You see I grew up thinking I was an athlete…what other conclusion could I draw…
"Grandma! You have so many beautiful flowers in your yard." Her granddaughter gasped. "Do you mind if I ask you why? "
"Because I'm always making wishes" Grandma said, "so I need a lot of butterflies."
Grandma took her granddaughter's hand and together they sat amongst the flowers…She said, "you can't tell by looking at them…but butterflies have great power."
Years ago my granddaughter and I were watching the sun set over the ocean…and as we stood there enjoying the view…she said, "Pick me ip PopPop, so I can see as good as you."
"Why is that? " I asked as I lifted her up and we gazed out at the sky.
"Because, " she said with the innocence of a child, "I have little eyes."
I wish to gift my granddaughter
A peaceful world full of limitless cheer
with no space for violence and war,
No bloodshed and gore,
"Did you have a favorite teacher, Grandma? " Her granddaughter asked…and immediately Grandma grinned.
"Why yes…my favorite teacher…" she said, "has always been the wind."
Seeing the confusion on her granddaughter's face she said, "Perhaps I should explain…there's so much we can learn from the sun…the wind…the rain…
I love swimming in the lake of my memories…closing my eyes and diving in headfirst…and bringing with me to the surface…memories submersed.
Take yesterday for instance…I dove in on a whim…and ended up, of all places, where memories of our granddaughter swim.
Old horse, old woman, rain
Three year old granddaughter, rider
The rain is dreich. It falls steeply and wet
On a windless day, where the cold gnaws at your knuckles
Her complexion is already fair and she doesn't need any mustard paste,
Her palm is already pink and she doesn't need the myrtle colors,
Her simplicity is itself a charm so what if she will not be made a bride,
Still there will be tears in my eyes when the flower leaves behind odors,
I took my granddaughter to a park…and as I watched her running to and fro
I wondered what advice I could give her…you know…advice to help her grow…
Perhaps I'd tell her:
