Brimming with...

I peep inwards
Doodle with  a child's crayon
Make pictures of times gone by
No oil, no canvas
No painter am I
Yet the pictures come out fine

I peep again
travel a few more years
lifting the sepia shrouds of
misty, foggy days
A conversation here
A little note there
A smile, a cuddle
Chuckles et al;
Soars my spirit today
As I lay on my bed
Parched today with a brimming past.

Memories revived,
I walk down the stairs
To my daily grind
Have to pack tiffins,
Ready breakfast.
Sudden flurry, a ball of fur
A forceful stop
A hug and banter
Endless licks and eyes! Those liquid pools..
There is someone
Today, with endless love
I am not alone
In the chores of a middle aged wife.
I am with Max

Yeah Balan, why didnt I have him before? But maybe this is the right time for me... :):)

I am drenched again
Max after his weekly shampoo
Filled to the brim
With a love
Unlike any other

This post of yours comes at a day when I'm incredibly low, questioning everything around me. Its heartening how you'd captured life in the few lines... I could almost see it unravel in front of my eyes... This makes me more nostalgic now... !

Sujata, I am so so happy for you! I proudly showed your posts to Parvati. P asked me to tell you about her students who come here with a deathly fear of dogs and go away as total dog lovers. I only wish such people out there who are afraid to love will read your posts. And dogs are the gateway to animal world and nature.

Max after bath looked so cuddlesome!
