From grandmother to mother,

To daughter,

The grand heirloom,from one generation to the next,

Not documented in any text,

It was a beauty for all to behold,

Its worth more than that of gold,

Ensuring, not a scratch even be left,

Dusting and polishing, guarding vigilantly against theft,

Sometimes wondering,

Why take so much trouble?one,eternally pondering.

What use is it to keep it so clean?

If from the other world it cannot be seen,


But hey! That’s the rule of nature, never procrastinating,

Put the required efforts, as much is capable of you,

The outcome not mattering much, experience making a better you.

The flowers of the fiction plant rooted in my brain, the voice of the inexpressible feelings hidden in my heart and the eruption of the theories burning in my mindโ€“ I made a ball out of the three, threw it high into the sky and it landed right at my blog.
