She Reads To Me

Hello all,
How is everything going on? Enjoying the week? Today is the day of fireworks (diwali) back in India. Enjoy yourself.

Today's post is in response to the Short Story Slam Week on blue-bell books. The picture here is the writing prompt. Let your creative juices flow. Don't forget to sign-up here.

Well Well, I am also sharing this poem on Poets United. So welcome to everyone coming from there. Don't forget to check out my amazing contest and to win loads of prizes.


 --x--
You can hear me right? she asks
though I can't reply back
& with all love, she hugs
my old-ugly-itchy truck trunk

Does she like me alone 
or all trees? I never knew.
Do I love her back/owe her one?
So mature, So decisive, My heart never grew

Wait I do, everyday, at the same 
hour, for her to come & read the story.
I remember not, either the plot or the name
all I want is, the glory in making her merry

Sings she, in her sing-song voice
before leaving, And they lived happily
ever-after. Leaving me with no choice
but to see her leave, dancing merrily

--x--

Pathetic job with grammar right? I know!! Let me know how I can improve it? Liked the poem? Don't forget to send some words of praise!! 

Don't forget to visit the contest.

with warm regards

Who cares about grammer? This is poetry, and the way it comes out is often exactly the way it should be. I like what you've done with this.

Really cute. I really enjoy your style of writing.

Freedom from grammar...that is what I love about poetry..we can always use a happy ever after :)

do you mean 'trunk' instead of 'truck'? I think even if the grammar is not so great, using the right word would make some difference. I'm constantly checking my spelling and meaning of words though my grammar isn't that great either.

still, a lovely piece of writing. it's light and charming and makes one want to smile while reading it.

I like it. I never would have thought of writing from the trees perspective. Cool!
