Starting a garden..

Starting a garden..

Catrin Welz-Stein

Time was nigh as far

as her plan of starting a

garden was concerned

 

She didn’t deviate from

her plan one bit despite the

proffer of a team

 

She made sure to clam

up the others saying that

it was in her mind

 

Once the idea

germinated in her brain,

they met as agreed

Starting a garden..

Spring season

Those incessant sounds of birds all round

pale in front of anything else

flowers that are still to bloom

might overcome turmoil

still with a smile and

have set aside

time in which

to make

fruit

Note: Used Karina Borowicz’s ‘September Tomatoes’ as a prompt

He made them proud..

He made them proud..

He had only seen poverty. While his father was a daily wage labourer, his mother worked from house to house washing dishes. But despite their struggles, they tried to ensure that they could educate him so that he had a better life. They always felt that – In their dreams they sleep with the moon.

As luck would have it, their son got a scholarship. Post his education, within the first year of joining an MNC, he made sure that his parents were out of the misery they had lived in. He had made them proud after all. While others did a lot of yada, yada, yada about taking care of parents, he made sure he actually did.

When he was a child he couldn’t ever dream of having a debit card. But now he was making sure that anyone could access the banking system.

Hues of autumn

Token

Original Poem

Fall had begun to

set in as the leaves turned red

yellow or orange

 

The berry picking

season was at its end with

just a token left

 

My revision

With the beginning

of autumn, nature displayed

its various hues

 

Berry season was

almost over except for the

few remaining behind

Me, Myself & I

Me, Myself & I

While I listen to

everyone, I make sure

that none bully me

 

I have the courage

to start over again despite

all the lampooning

 

I have a weakness

for jaunting through crowds as well

lounging on the beach

 

I make sure that none

of my relationships are

fake in any way

Eavesdropping

Eavesdropping

Having noted her existence,

they planned to make their presence felt,

They tried to pry all her online activities,

without much success since she was miles ahead,

She already knew that eavesdropping was pointless,

and would simply lead to nothing but a dead end

Politics

Politics

While his campaign had

been flagging since a while,

he never held back

 

Though it may have seemed

odd to others, he did all

he possibly could

 

Despite garnering

respect, his politics didn’t

find many takers

Hikes

Hikes

These are desperate times for economies around the world. Hikes of all kinds whether its in utility rates, ticket rates, hotel rates, prices in retail and more maybe required to prevent a number of organizations and countries going bust. But on the other hand, hikes will discourage people even further as there are millions who have lost jobs.

The most important thing for almost anyone is to ensure that they are able to put food on the table. All the other luxuries may have taken a backseat for the foreseeable future. Life has become all the more intense and it is a far cry from the fantabulous days before the pandemic when money hunters didn’t need to do much at all as everything seemed hunky dory. The struggle for survival is on as the pandemic has given people a mirror on their actions from the past.

From spring to summer,

the pandemic left millions

struggling for it all

Classed

Classed

Classed amongst the rest

angered him so much so that

he just huffed aloud

Cycling

Cycling

She had turned wheatish

as she loved to cycle all

the time in the sun

 

Her cat went along

by her side wherever she

took her bicycle

 

But this time she ended

up in a place where pets were

being refused entry
