Mangoes

IMG_7651My sister came from Florida this morning. She had a carry on bag and a huge box that she had put in the luggage. All these mangoes, all for me from her home! OMG! I could hardly lift the box.
If it were any other fruit, I would invite you to come andΒ  share it with me. BUT…. since they are mangoes, and because I am one selfish you know what, I will not invite you. I have told my family that no one can touch them unless I give them permission.

Life, how sweet it is!

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.

    Not only would I need an invitation, but I’d also need somebody to peel the mangoes for me — I’m terribly allergic to the peels, though I love the flavor of the fruit!

    Now that I know they are at your place, I’ll have to practice my best ninja moves and sneak into your kitchen… hahaha.
