Poem By Hasmukh Amathalal

In my house of daub and wattle
I like to call my home
I have a water bottle
Which keeps my knees quite warm.

It's black and big and furry
I call it Mister P.
I feed it on Fresh Turkey
It means the world to me.

I used to have a palace
Before my bottle came
Where Lords and Ladies showed their face
And once or twice the Queen.

But thanks to Mister Purry
And his great appetite
My fortune's in the slurry
But he keeps me warm at night.

In my house of daub and wattle
I like to call my home
I stroke my water bottle
And Purry starts to purr!

There! Mr. Purry the Hot Water Bottle is now immortalized as I am sure he agrees he should be [cats not being known for humility]. I had no idea, though, that he ate that much.... perhaps you should take up raising buffalo... maybe a lot of buffalo. Cats and pets may be expensive but how boring life would be without their demands for food, meow, demands to be let out, meow, demands to be let back out, MEOW, demands, for better food, M-E-O-W, and their snuggles and pur-r-r-r-r-r-s. Loved reading this humorous poem about your turkey eater, Tom. Maybe he will star in another cattail.... ;)

Miss ', I Really Miss (101) /500 ###

I was stepping in to become young
I thought it is nice journey but too long
I am afraid and take care not to go wrong
I was expecting everything for song

All Dreams Not Come True ###309(In 500)

All dreams may not come true
All credits due may not accrue
But with true reflection in mind
Ideas newer and newer may emerge and find

A Place Called

place called “home” is to feel homely,
God’s creation standing by to look so lovely,
May be she is with all her elegance,
Everything for sure and no pretence,

Anywhere You Like

You suggested to me let us meet anywhere,

A place Where HE is not there,


Learned poets have said “beauty is to enjoy”
Like fresh flowers always give you joy
Don’t attempt to pluck or destroy
Not to play with it as simple toy

All Hopes Against Hope

All hopes dash against hopes
It is like tight walking on simple ropes
We may counter stiff resistance at high slope
Bonding may not be possible even if you elope
