Week 6 of My Fifty Two Weeks Journey with “W”

Write Anything Wednesday

Yesterday was International Women’s Day. When I planned my vacation, that was not planned at all, I had scheduled to spend one day with my mother-in-law. At that time I had no idea about International Women’s Day.  I am happy that I had the opportunity to spend the day with an wonderful women yesterday.  My mother-in-law is a self taught person who had barely seen the inside of a formal school.  At a very early age she had to leave formal education and stay home to take care of her siblings after the unexpected death of her father. Married at seventeen, she raised five successful kids and with the encouragement of her husband completed her education. Married for fifty nine years, she lost her husband three years back.  Since then she is living alone independently learning new skills like managing personal finance, renters etc that used to be taken care of by my father-in-law.  She is a published writer writing in her mother tongue stories, articles and songs and very involved in her neighborhood community activities. As a tribute to her and International Women’s Day, the word I have chosen for week 6 of my fifty two weeks journey with letter “W” is “WOMEN”.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.
