The First Poem !

It is said inspiration can strike anybody anytime..

But we were really not expecting that inspiration to strike this early !

We are talking about Saanvi's inspiration. Today she wrote a picture depicting sun set. I asked to describe the same sunset in words.

Saanvi started off saying she is now telling a poem.. This is what I wrote as she recited the poem.

The Sun is setting
Over the Mountains
And over the Sea

The Moon is rising
The Stars are waking up
And it become night time

The birds go to nest
And cuddle their eggs
The caterpillar run into cocoon
The bears go into snuggly holes

I feel like glumpy
My heart rises to the Sun
My legs jump up & down
My hands are high in the sky

That is all I hide in my heart

Every single word was from her and all I have to do was write it down as it came out of Saanvi's mouth. I needed to write as she still doesn't know to write complete words and sentences.

We were certainly not expecting this..Need less to say we are pleasantly surprised !

Saanvi calls herself as 'Poet Junior' !

She even thought of a name of this poem - 'Sun is Setting'

For us, Sun definitely seems to be raising now !!!!

Snow Angel

Layers of Frozen sheets
Skated on the river
Humongous white blanket
Wrapped the mountains

Snow on rocks
Snow on roads
Snow all around
The surreal snow

It looked like somebody
Poured frosty sugar everywhere
It looked like somebody
Dipped everything in ice-cream

Do you hear it
Tiny snow wings
Spreading on the snow
Flapping & turning

Its the sunny smiles
Its the melting giggles
Its the snow
Flying everywhere

Its the snow angel...
