This piece serves as my attempt at multiple recent challenges. Thank you so much for reading! Also, I need to request your patience in regard to reading/reposts, because as our cross country move is drawing near, my presence here will be sporadic for a month or two. Thanks for understanding and bearing with me. ♥️
The Merchant Marine & His Irish Queen by lovenotes_from_carolyn A wild and winsome wayfarer Set sail with the Merchant Marines To a land called the Emerald Isle That's decked out in the loveliest greens
'Twas perhaps the luck o' the Irish That led up to next event For there, in the naval office 'Twas a gal who looked heaven-sent!
A bright lass was she, named Jenny With brown hair and eyes of blue For him, it was love at first sight And I reckon it was for her too
Yes, that was my gramps and my gran In a meeting designed by fate There's a whole lot more to that story But the hour is growing quite late
Fast forward to one whole year later Oh that Irish lass, gramps sure did miss So he brought her back here, to the States Where they married, in wedded bliss
They got on with the usual business Of living their day to day life And soon enough, gramps did discover He had a fine cook for a wife!
She prepared all the food to perfection From hors d'oeuvres to roasted meats To veggies and soups and salads And of course, all the goodies and sweets
Huge feasts she'd create to delight us Not a single time e'er did she fail For as soon as she'd bring out the food Cheers of delight would prevail
Her pies were sweet and superb Her cookies, a chewy delight And she'd send us on home with the extras When we left at the end of the night
In the chill of midwinter on Sundays I'd sit right by gran at her feet As she'd tell me the tales of her childhood While munching on goodies to eat
By then, she had barely an accent But still, it was there in some way And oh, was I fond of her voice Which lives on in my heart to this day
lovenotes_from_carolyn@lunarwolf I really do appreciate your genuine reads and comments very much! Especially glad that you found this one to be touching and beautiful, as this true tale remains dear to my heart always. ☘☘
The realistic portrayal of youth in all its facts. The beauty in everyday life during a time when we’re young and bold. The realistic portrayal of the pains of growing up. The subtle and innocent romance. The friendship between the classmates The relationship between teacher and students, as well as the relationship between the youths and their parents. The step by step visit to the last year in High School.
In the pink and red saree of the cotton of her heart, I see her looking at me with her love-dosed eyes, Where dwells the paradise of great Gods, And an ocean of gleaming fireflies, In my dreams of nightmares.
She asks not me but my heart what it starves for, It says "nothing but solace", With a little smile she said "anything mi amour (my love)", And stirred some o(u)nions with her blessed spatula, Uniting my lonesome with some insane friends, When she met me in my dreams of nightmares,
I stood bewitched in her kitchen, Wondering whether it's a magic or her blessing, 'til I heard the sizzling singing, Of her next breath taking manoeuvre.
Sizzle sparkling warmth in air like fire works, She performed her moves enchanting than magic, Spelling the food with ecstatic solace giving charms, Adding laughter with the yellow turmeric, Love n devil's strength for this demon world with the red chillies, And everything for a grand solace giving cuisine, Which the naive me never remembered in reality, 'Cause it was a dream of my nightmare,
With a pinch of peace giving green coriander leaves, She garnished it with her eternal love, She served my stunned heart the dish, Which it always called 'my grandmother's gift', That tasted like a whole new life, Which she adorned with her blessing hands, That gave me solace on this thorny world. She gave me this in my dreams of nightmares.
//I never saw my grandma in real but for me, every good thing's one of all reason is her blessing and love and of course her guidance in my dreams of nightmares//
She is so strong ❤ she is just a beautiful lady with kind heart And having lovely soul You know when she wake up at the morning Her face had a different glow ✨ Starting from morning tea for all Her duty starts in the kitchen She never like any messed up things She has certain rules while she is cooking No one should disturb her No one should interfere She always makes sure that everything should be neat and clean Her hands are having magic That makes a dish so tasty Her handmade MUTTON, everyone's favorite Her handmade KHIR, everyone's gonna have a good taste And her special treatment towards me because am her first granddaughter The way my BOU carry me, The way she just loves me, even now also, it's makes me feel so precious Ya from last some years it's so difficult for me, my whole family to watch my grandma in pain who is suffering as psychiatrist patient She is not able to remember all things but she remember her QUEEN (me),her whole family, her relations, and her love still constant ..... I miss her activities I miss her every moment But I know she will get well soon I love my nani so so much to the square of infinity♥.....
