Daily Prompt : Cherish

In response to today’s Prompt : Cherish

cherish the memory of the days,

When we enjoyed ourselves many ways.

They were the kind of dreams we loved,

We played, we laughed under the sky above.

Those childhood days were the best in our life,

I wish I could  cling to them without strife!

365 Writing Prompt: Imperfections

Imperfections: in things, in people, in places add character to life. Tell us about an imperfection that you cherish.

When my daughter was in kindergarten, the teacher asked the little five year old girls and boys to draw a picture of her family.

My daughter drew a picture of everyone in the family including her aunt who was living with us at that time. When the teacher asked  who these people were, she proudly pointed out the people in the picture: “she said this is mommy Asgar, daddy Asgar, me, my baby sister and my auntie Asgar.”

Although it was not a perfect picture and I did not expect it to, this is one imperfection I cherish!

By the side of a well by R.Tagore translated by Ranu

Neem - the pharmacy tree

I did not want anything from you  , I did not tell you my name,

when you said good bye I kept quiet.

I was sitting alone by the well in the shadow of the Neem tree,

they all left with their pitchers to the neighbourhood.

They  called me as they were leaving, ‘come the day is almost over.’

What kept me from moving what was I thinking.

I did not hear your footsteps when did you come.

You had a look of sadness __    you spoke with a very tired voice___

‘I am a distressed thirsty traveller.’  in a fit of surprise

I poured the water in your folded hands.

The rustling leaves trembled, the cuckoo was calling from somewhere__

the yellow flowers of the acacia tree  was spreading its aroma in the village path.

When you asked my name I was very shy__

what  have I done for you to remember me!

I was only able to give you some water to quench your thirst

I will cherish this in my memory.

By the side of the well, the birds chirp just like before in the afternoon,

the leaves tremble in the same manner___ I remain seated.
