Homeward Bound

I am DEIGHTED to report, that I am ALL PACKED and ready to leave for India on Sunday. Some of you know how much I hate packing. But I got that done. So here I am, ready and excited to go.

My land, my town, my streets, my traffic and pollution, all, that I love. But I also love the fragrance of the flowers, the sweetness of the tropical fruits, the blinding smiles of the people, the honest and sincere hospitality of people I meet,  the warble of the birds in the mango trees…. all this I love, and I am going to embrace it.

See you all with some photos when I return end of the month.


About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. 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.
