Where I am From!

I am from the mango orchards, the fruit of summer
from that old mud house and dusty lanes.
I am from the undulating paddy fields,
and the vast yellow wheat plains.

I am from the endless stretch of marigold,
the happy bougainvillea.
I am from the painting and reading books,
from Rukmini and Nom.

From nani, a small girl and gudiya, a doll.
I am from Tarai and hills
and, rice and chicken soup.
From helping and being honest,

from alcoholism and education.
I am from lush green plains,
from the deep dark woods,
from the compassion that gives you life.

Hi, Sangita,
I like your piece: it gives the reader a sense of place; the images provides the context for your work and the the spare, minimalist lines radiates the culture and circumstances that shape who you are now. Yeah, the exercise must have been a pleasurable experience for you as it was for me.

Best regards,
