Little Melon Lover

A little girl lived on the banks of a curly river;
she was little, round, plump and daily getting bigger.
‘The Girl’, just that was her name;
even though it sounded so lame.

This girl loved sweets and fruits;
and most of all, she liked melons.
She bought ladles of these fruits
and bought all sorts, red & yellow, tasty & juicy melons.

Once she went to a little village town;
known for its scrumptious melons.
there she saw it, the melon worth a crown;
for truly, it was a king of all melons.

Large and round it was, with dark stripes;
green like grass, big as sailing ships.
the fruit held flavours of a hundred types;
and The girl started wetting her lips.

She had no control and bought it whole;
no flavours to spare, all of it together;
and brought it back home, brought it whole;
to enjoy all the delicious flavours together.

but alas! On the way back, it rolled off;
“Oh my melon, come back…” She cried.
it paid no heed and went off & off;
pieces of it broke off. “Oh my melon”, she cried.

but such was written in the stars;
no man (or woman) shall enjoy these tastes;
unless he (or she) shares it from Earth to Mars;
so “SPLASH!” went a large bit into water with all the tastes.

and therefore dears, if you ever see;
a melon growing large and juicy sweet.
Know that this little girl, little though was she;
was one round, plumb reason why its so sweet.

For the waters of the curly river flowed on with the sweet;
and made all the melons of the world a real treat.

The Tale of a boy and a feline

There was once a boy named Charlie Ben;
who kept a cat named Mandie-Men.
The cat was softy and furry;
and mewy and merry.

One day, Ben went camping;
and left Men lonely lamenting.
When he came back, was he surprised;
there was no Men in sight.

(He had disappeared under the mat;
to make little Ben feel bad).
The boy didn’t find the cat;
and started feeling really, really bad.

Finally, he lost all his hope;
started crying, he really did mope.
And Men heard him crying out;
(Ben had, in sorrow, made a pout).

The cat saw this, the cat saw stars;
in fact, he mentally launched himself to Mars.
But then, the boy didn’t stop the tears;
he actually cried more than his peers.

So Men started feeling bad;
and came out from under the mat.
He mewed, the boy heard, he jumped;
looked around, saw him & jumped again.

Jumped near him in joy;
and played with him like a toy.
(More & more, Ben loved the feline;
so he slept near his waistline).

Then they went to the bed and lied down;
yet, their spirits were, by no means, down.
So they had a short nap after a supper;
and lived happily ever after.

The Most Memorable Day of My Life

The most memorable day of my life;

Was when my blood pressure went high.

I lost my way in the puzzling streets;

And stood there wondering about my bad deeds.

No one can tell the panic I felt;

As all body parts started to melt.

I stood there puzzled and alone;

I didn’t even have a mobile phone.

I peddled & peddled, with my heart thumping;

I peddled to find something relieving and helping.

I started to get angry on myself;
for trying unknown streets without any help.

After an hour, I heard a motor’s roar;

To my relief, I’d found a main road.

It was a real adventure for me;

To get lost in my huge city.

Thought I Could Write – Sonnet No.1

Thought I could write a novel;

could not, daft ideas, bore.

No problem, several kinds of prose;

do exist in literature, several I adore.

Thought I could write a story;

could not, again the same blank.

Then again, no problem, I can always

cross this river on another plank.

Thought I could write a poem;

again no, blank head, no words flow.

This time, problem, for what else;

can I write, nothing else I know?

Well, you ask what did I end up with now;

Can’t you see, can’t you see, what you’re reading now?
