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 !!!!


  1. ಅಪ್ಪ-ಅಮ್ಮ,
    I am overwhelmed by little Saanvi's great poem. ಭಾವನೆಗಳು ಹಾಗು ಕಲ್ಪನೆಗಳು ಈ ಎಳೆಯ ಹೃದಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಹೇಗೆ ಮೂಡಿ, ಹೊರ ಬರುತ್ತವೆ ಎನ್ನುವುದು ಅಚ್ಚರಿಯ ಹಾಗು ಸಂತೋಷದ ವಿಷಯವಾಗಿದೆ. ಈ ಪುಟ್ಟ ಬಾಲೆಯು ನಾಳೆ ದೊಡ್ಡ ಕವಯಿತ್ರಿಯಾಗುವುದರಲ್ಲಿ ಸಂಶಯವಿಲ್ಲ. Give her all the support she needs.
    ನಾಳಿನ ಕವಯಿತ್ರಿಗೆ ಈ ಅಜ್ಜನ ಶುಭಾಶೀರ್ವಾದಗಳು.

  2. Sunaath Ajja,

    Saanvi had big smile when I read your comments. She says thank you for the lovely wishes !

    She said she is going to continue learning maths, going to school & writing more poems :)

    Thanks so much. It means so much coming from you..

  3. My best wishes to Little Saanvi :)
