Say Cheese

mom dad kids,
pets, pimples and rash
lying around toys
two cans of trash
                                  half consumed bottles
                                  of old medicines
                                 huge stack of newspapers
                                 and magazines
boxes full of old clothes,
pictures and memories
arguments over the chores
and the grocery
                                heavy bills leading to
                                occasional fight
                                rising prices, home loans
                                some sleepless nights
laughter and joys running
front and backyard
autumns and springs
and a happy christmas card
                                fighting, cribbing, making up
                                and bouts of cold
                                ingredients of happy family
                                in italics and in bold

About Soma Mukherjee

I often say things that put me in a jam, Jams go well with Buttered Toasts, Toasts are great hosts, Ghosts not so much, Although they can dance, Not all dancers are serial killers, Serial killers do not use Body bags that often, body bags aren't leak proof, Proof is in the Pudding.

  1. Wonderful portrait! Love this, Soma, and your imagery was perfect and I also enjoyed the ending!

  2. Your last stanza was epic…well all of it was wonderful, but I think the ability to close a thought with power can really make a good work into a great work. I greatly enjoyed this one!

  3. Soma, A merry Christmas and a happy new year to you and your dear family. Looks today is music day. Was watching this on you tube. Thought you’d like this. Cheers. 🙂
