Art And Culture


My home is in the valley of heaven,

Under the bosom of Mother Nature

The valley remains virgin for ages,

And beautiful as ever and laudable!

My home is in the valley and remains…

But the distance to my home increased.,

As I am waxed and walked away…

Though it was inevitable, it became a habit

A habit of deliberate neglect.

I walked past and will be there somewhere

With somebody…

But not at home!

My home will go nowhere, I was sure

And lost priority… unaware that..

My mother was waiting, glancing at the empty road

Reluctant to go inside as I was expected at any time..!

She closed her door only half, thinking

What if her daughter turns up suddenly?

She jumped up and ran to the gate for some shadow…

Returns silently as it turned out to be a stranger,

She sat alone on the veranda, watching the clouds shaping

Thinking about the curiosity in my twinkling eyes once…

Someday I thought of my home and returned,.

Home was there, but my mother was missing,

Did you come at last, retorted the broken veranda,

So you came… sighed the half dried Gulmohar tree.

Yes, I came…and give me little space to sit

And wait… glancing at the empty road with the door half open…!!

  • But a smiling visitant here to share the love (:, btw great layout. “Better by far you should forget and smile than that you should remember and be sad.” by Christina Georgina Rossetti.

  • A lot of whatever you mention is supprisingly legitimate and that makes me wonder why I had not looked at this in this light before. Your piece truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular subject matter goes. Nonetheless at this time there is one factor I am not necessarily too comfortable with so while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual central theme of the position, allow me observe what all the rest of your visitors have to point out.Well done.

  • The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
