Zain turns THREE!


When you were born,
the angels sang in my ears~
you put a smiley on my heart.
Did you target my soul
by becoming a cute little dart?
You tattooed your name
all over my spirit
and called it a game!
Bit by bit, and day by day
you spun your magic
around this old heart
when you look at me
and smile with your eyes
and raise your arms
to hear my heartbeats.
Today, on your first birthday
I want to tell you
that you have made my
life whole; I love you.

Happy Birthday Zain.

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.
