24 bar 12

24/12

24/12 at age 5

Christmas Eve by age five, 
an eve of my parents’ plan.
In glittering dress so naïve, 
kisses from kith and kin rain.
back home, my wish list in my stockings, 
through chimney Santa Claus to come,
good boy Jenish went to sleep singing,
“silent night, holy night, all is calm, Santa, you come”.

24/12 at age 18

Christmas Eve by age eighteen
ultimate fun, a great sense in teen.
fag ,booze,from evening five ten.
my friends, I ,crack fire works by all den
in richest dress, bothering others least.
In Church “impressing: our goal” silently
for bad boy Jenish, no Santa his eve .no gift.
Slept,Know not when gently

24/12 at age 27

Christmas Eve by age twenty seven 
Me and my wife. Alone we were.
a silk saree for her, beauty! Divine!
my dress ,all her choice, I wore.
“her choice” made me a Gentleman, 
for my wife, in-laws and their big family.
My wife tried crackers,great is my woman.
atom bombs, hydrogen bombs, rockets no silly.
her courage instilled great confidence in me.
all bombs cracked noisily. Stood fearless my Victoria!
My darling by my side, I would dare the sky for we.
This time, I believed Santa would gift me and Victoria
for, jenish and victoria, the good boy and girl.
My sweet heart wrote a wish list to Santa
I pretended as if I sleep, once she slept I whirled
to unroll the list written for Santa,
“Santa, pray for me and Jenish.
We need another Jenish and another Victoria”.
I saw a great woman in her. Slept peacefully Jenish.
I dream the kids of my Cinderella,Victoria.

rest for same contest next year………….

    A personal verse which is what I so enjoy, take heart, we write and write and as we do so diligently we learn! I re-write almost constantly. The first time usually just gets the concept out of YOU! You are a fine person and that is what's most important. You know 2 or more? languages and I certainly bow to you! Light & Love
