Enter November!

Are you shawl-ready?
The month eleventh,
Cool in the desert,
Cold elsewhere,
Freezing minus ten,
Speeding to year-end.

Glance back perhaps
The time did lapse,
Memories we made,
Some of laughters
Some of regrets.

We lost some,
We found some,
People gone,
People come.

Thanksgiving month,
Gratitude to hold,
Tomorrows to behold,
With fervour,
Enter November,
Let's thank all those,
We forgot to remember.

Gratitude is the best attitude


Sundays, lovely sundays, 
No rushing to work,
No hopping on buses,
Or catching trains,
Or missing subways.

No early wake up call,
No hurry, no haste at all,
No alarms ringing,
Lazy waking,
And lazier rising.

Leisure short and sweet,
Sunday's a treat!
But this Sunday,
Get busy,
Get ready,
Decorate the home
Bright, all lit.

Favourite foods cooking,
Special savories
Yummy, spicy and crunching,
On Diwali sweets
Don't yet start munching!

Shop to shop hopping,
Shopping, more shopping,
Getting busy inviting,
And rangoli making.

Celebrate and cheer,
Diwali's here!
Get ready!
