Guess what I wished for?

I learnt a lesson today: when you’re sad, just be happy. Everything eventually falls into place, why fret and crib? So on a gleeful note, here’s a poem which has been sitting in the drafts folder for far too long now. O and there’s a teensy handmade comic at the end. What are these doing together? Don’t ask me, I don’t know.

You do enjoy my unsteadiness, don’t you?

Make a wish

On a dark, inky night—
I see a shooting star

I race to make a wish:
Dreaming of gold
And a knight’s kiss

Of big houses
And swanky cars
Perhaps some jewels
Maybe wealth of a tzar?

In that instant,
I see a vivid dream
There’s a teensy fly
Beside a pot of cream

It swoons as it
Licks the bowl
Eyes gleaming
It readies to eat whole

With a decisive plunge
It lands into the cream—

Caught in gelatinous treacly
Sinks deeper every second
Alas, can’t even scream!

The viscous cream
Devours its prey
O greedy fly, I wish
You’d remained

Back to reality
My mind ticks—
No, riches aren’t enough
I’ll feel something’s amiss

In prayer and gratitude,
I close my eyes
As I wish…

Badamm-Tsss. This is my feeble attempt at humour. Be kind and let out a laugh or two, okay? (I couldn’t find the original comic, so here’s a bad remake for you)

Meanwhile in a parallel universe…


I miss being a regular here. I’ll have to somehow squeeze WordPress into my schedule. Because when me no blog, me loses sanity. Uff, me be so demanding.

      1. Let me think which one it was.. I say it almost 4 years back.. it doesn’t have to actually do anything with the cartoon, but the setup in the cartoon looks like the one they had in the show…
