A poem that will bring a smile on your face any day.

Sweet aroma

guppy macro of pregnant female Guppy (Poecilia reticulata), bit harsh reflections on the belly

All I want for Mother’s Day is a pregnant guppy

No kitty, no hippo, no cockatoo, nor puppy

No perfect yellow rose, nor reconstructed nose,

No silver spoon from which to sup,

No gold-etched china saucer and cup,

No trinkets nor blankets, not even books

No cell phone, new chair, nor shelves with coat hooks,

No flowers in a stunning vase

Nothing made of satin, denim, nor lace

No lotions, no  oils – nothing used in tubs.

No pictures nor pitchers, not even back rubs.

All I want is a pregnant guppy  —

        I pray she’ll not be mean and vicious

        Who finds her children quite delicious!

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.

2 thoughts on “A PREGNANT GUPPY, PLEASE”

  1. Why, Pranab, how nice of you to share this. Makes me almost want to let you win a round. I notice all your comments on my blog give you the last word. Today you even took the occasion for three “last words.” How do I reply when there is no room to reply? But regarding your right to criticize our Pres., yes it is certainly your right. If I did not think you were wanting the repartee, I wouldn’t be jabbing. 😀 Will we have to quit and only be nice to each other? Ah, I would miss that!

    1. “Pregnant Guppy” did bring a smile to my face, specially the last line.
      “nice to each other” – no way Jose ( or would it be no way senorita?). But as I said, theme for this month’s poems for me is “Love” , so I am trying to be moderate😊. May be trying to hard, my BP is rising.
