Yes, Grandma
by Dr. Kumarendra Mallick

Yes, grandma!

I am awake, go on…

 

Lucky are they

who have seen grandma,

luckier still

who got stuck to her

to hear stories of witches and ghosts,

and lovelier ones, too,

of Red Riding Hood and Piped Piper…

 

A home short of her wrinkled forehead

is like without butter a piece of dry bread,

a blank paper not scribbled by a baby,

without dots, lines, cartoons and stories,

good for the trash can with no queries

 

A pond is incomplete

without a lotus,

will a night sky be complete

without a moon and million stars,

the heart too is incomplete

without the ripples of love,

and the home is incomplete

without giggling kids

and grandma’s treasure-trove!

Comment Dear Dr. Kumarendra Mallick,

I read your comment on my poem in "Your Space/Muse India" and became curious in your poetry yesterday. I like this poem and would like you to consider submitting this and other material for an anthology on "Family Mattters" with Nivasini Publishers, Hyderabad. Please look at the website:http://nivasinipublishers.blogspot.de/
We are three editors so I canĀ“t promise anything, but please consider my offer. The poems must really be focused on the family; no too simple rhymes, please.
Best wishes from Germany,
Frank Joussen
