You are home tonight

Throw away the failures friend

Life is a journey

Changes are best part of it

Major life crisis

May make it hard

To be home

Every night

Name any city

Without a homeless shelter

Residents yearning

To pull the trigger

And call it quits

Hear the sound clouds

Wingless angels sing

Love songs

Let attitude of forgiveness and 

Gratitude for being alive

Wipe away the

Sweat and tears

Like April showers

Bringing May flowers

Goals of the teenage years

Give you hope

Let this be it

Take a break from your fears

Under the sky

You are home tonight

I have been waiting from the morning tonight for some installers to show up.  They were supposed to come between 8:30 AM to 9:00 AM but no show.  After many phone calls, I was told that they will come about 12 noon.  One assistant showed up around quarter to twelve but no installer, no appliance.  I can’t leave home also.  Bored, I was playing with the titles of many of the posts in my reader today morning and result is this poem.  My apologies for the authors (more than twenty five of them to name all) for borrowing words from their titles and rearranging for this poem. I am sure many of them will be able to recognize the skeletons of their posts’ titles.  I need to go and get something to eat.  Not sure anyone is going to show up now. It is already 1:30 PM.

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.

  1. yes, it’s easy to get discouraged… in this world where everyone hates everyone. I love someone very much and he can’t talk to me and I have to let him go….until this winter is over, and people are so rude.

  2. You did not find any appliance installers, PB, but you found a poem by recombining the titles of many posts. Very creative way to pass the time while you wait… and wait… and wait. Best of luck, contractors seem to think customers have all the time in the world to sit around waiting on them to show up. 🙂

  3. Great rearrangement of word borrowings. You made the best out of the inconvenience of the installators not coming. While someone else would be desperate and just complain about the time wasted you have been using it to create an original poem. I am glad the installators finally arrived. The same happens in my country. They tell you a time and you must keep waiting.

    1. Thanks so much Marta. It(writing the poem) was definitely helpful in reducing my stress. I translated it to my mother tongue, Axomiya (Assamese – অসমীয়া) also. So time well spent.😊

    1. Alas, I spoke too soon. They arrived late afternoon so obviously could not complete. Now we have to wait till tile works and painting is done for the installers to come back and test the fire place insert. Not sure when that will be.
