April 4th of NPM

(Include the following words in the poem: Equal, umbrella, tidy and weight)

Regardless of the weight of known and unknown cares
I tell myself to stand tall and finish the chores
How can the twins be identical or equal in etiquette
when one twirls the open umbrella in the mud,
and the other, with clean and tidy getup,
pushes herself away and tries to delegate!©


The freshness of spring fills my garden.

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.

    The poem is wonderfully wrought! Those twins sound like night and day (and quite the handful) but isn’t that just like late winter and early spring??
