Close Family

Fundament of also personal life,

Is a wedding, birth, decease

It’s immediate cause of joy or strife

Today, joy could increase

A Compliment

Indeed it’s a compliment:

Children choosing partners resembling

Their opposite gender parent

Though there’s no guaranteed choosing

#99WSP #Dec3 Our Ramadan

It may be four thirty and we all rise

I had made soup yesterday and warm it slowly

Husband and then children, get food on the table

Fruit, bread, yoghurt are usually part of our breakfast

Always someone cracks a joke or has yesterday’s story

Breakfast must end punctually, even when there’s no adhan

Prayers, sleep a while, then daily routine is done

The season decides at what time we’ll have dinner

Whatever is served, there’s always some milk and dates
