My Calling!

Writing 7a

I found out that
Writing was
My calling!

Since then
I wanted to
Keep on
Writing!

Did I know
Where it would
Take me
Then?

Only that
I wanted to
Keep on
Writing!

Now see
What I am
Doing,

I have begun
To write
To so many,

On
I am My Path,

And I
Like to,
Keep on
Writing.

So,
I have
Found out
That,

Once
You become
A writer

You Like to
Keep on
Writing!

What Next?

Girl 3a

I know that
I am being
Guided along!

For the
Purpose
I was born!

Sometimes
I hear you
Sometimes
I don’t!

When
I don’t hear you
I get confused!

I know
You do not
Speak in
Words as such!

But that
Messages come
From
All around!

I know
There is
A time for
Everything!

But
Sometimes when
The right time is
Missed!

Things can
Go amiss
In a way
We never thought!

Then the
Question arises
What the
Real meanings are!

Because
The detour was
Never mentioned
In the plan!

Or,
Did the detour
Come to safeguard
The plan?

You are silent!

Is it
Very far
To go?

How do I
Find the
Answers as such!

What
To do next
And when
Is it
Going to be?

Two Little Girls!

Girl 7

A knock on the door
And
The door burst open!

Two little faces
Appeared,
Like the sun
Through the door!

Grandma we are here
Grandma we want to play
Grandma can we go up!

Two pairs of feet
Running
Up and down
the stairs!

Two pairs of hands
Looking
Out for things!

Two little girls
Jumping
On the bed!

Pillows on the floor
Sheets all crumpled
Otherwise
Neatly made bed!

Squeals of laughter
Echoing around
Just like the wind chimes
Swaying in the wind!

Time to go
Thank you grandma
Love you grandma
Hugs and wet kisses!

Bye bye grandma
The door closes
Silence!

But,
Sounds of laughter
The patter of feet
Still echoing in the house!

Grandma smiled
A happy smile
Settled herself back
In her comfy chair!

The Hidden Rainbow!

Picture 6

It has been raining
Rain drops keep falling
On and on, and on again!

The sun has gone
Behind the clouds
Taking away the
Light with him.

Without the rain
There are no rainbows
Without the sun too
There are no rainbows!

When will the
Sun come out again?
With patience
I wait time and again.

Looking up
High above,
Searching through the
Sky and clouds,

The sun has
Taken away
All the
Colours from the sky!

The world has lost it’s
Colours again!
