It’s been a very short year
As if I hopped jan to May
Danced through september
And lo behold its new year!

The nest is filled with pebbles,
Some that I sought by penchant,
Some that came by chance,
The bough saw all seasons.

And their leaves all lands,
Its cozier than ever,
It’s been a little silent..
Good for all faint music,

That strings in such moments.
As I seek more pebbles,
A,whilst guarding treasures,
I wish to share with dears,

The shiniest of them ever!
The seed of love and..
Gratitude that grew as,
The tree, On its bough,
Sits my nest humbled!

It’s been a very short year,
The mango tree planted,
With new year has filled,
My courtyard with golden.
Blooms and fragrance mellow!
