  • Relief

    Finally some good news. Dave is really beginning to feel better. The pain that he has had is now just a dull discomfort. The best news is that his PSA levels are coming down very well. I am so grateful to God for this miraculous response. Thank you all for your kind thoughts, good wishes and sincere prayers. I am indebted to all of you.  Saadi is finally able to fall asleep and not wake up in the middle of the night with anxiety. She has had such a rough road thus far.

    I hope you don’t mind me talking about Dave so much. I feel like I don’t have any thing other than that to talk about. I haven’t written a poem in such a long time. Haven’t posted pictures of food. Just had been walking around in a daze this whole time. I pray that Dave continues to feel better and we will get back to the routine of our lives.

    Going to a luncheon to Pittsfield (45 miles from here) to attend a retirement party, a (luncheon) for my friends. They did their residency training with me. Their children are giving this party, and I had thought that if Dave was feeling good, then I would attend it. So now I decided that I would go and have some fun there. may be I will take some pictures too.


    Advent of Winter.

    The grass is losing its green.

    the blades look worn and tired.

    I lower myself and whisper,

    ‘Tiny blades of grass, your steps are small

    and vulnerable. Do you feel alone

    while you possess the earth under your tread”?

    The blades of grass look at me and say,

    “we seek our crowd in the earth.

    Have you seen the tree? It was part of this earth too,

    now it seeks its solitude in the blue of the sky”!

My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.
