My New paper boat.!

It was raining out there and I was down with cold.
I tore out a paper from my notebook old.

Three folds on it and ready was my boat.
It felt like magic, on water it could float!

In a joyous journey on the slushy road,
It rolled and sailed and sailed and Rolled!

In its memory, A poem I wrote.
And I named it…
My new paper boat, My new paper boat!



Lying lazy on the couch, A thought crossed my mind..
Should try writing a poem, Or something of that kind..!
A good topic is a must, Somewhere I’d read..
Hence pulled my laptop and scratched my head..!

I GOOGLEd for long, on topics to choose..
There were many – like ‘My trip to chile’ and ‘Old wise goose’..!!
I couldn’t make the choice, So called up my friend..
‘Selfie’ was her answer – A topic in trend..!!

To write first two lines, It took me a really long time..
I sought Google’s help, To make it rhyme…!
I used few tough words, which I had just found..
In a hope to be called ‘a poet, profound’ .!!

Sixteen lines in the poem, was the goal that I had set..
When I touched the mark, I was soaked in sweat..!!
My first and last attempt at poetry, Came to an end..
I started making a list- to whom the poem, I should send..!!

And I wondered and wondered.. If is this how every first poem is written..!!! ??fortc3a6llinger_med_morale



My first tryst with cooking, is a tale to narrate

It all started on the day, when my age read eight..!!

I was home, alone and having nothing cooked to eat.

There was Milk; there was sugar and few grains of wheat..!!


The recipe which I tried, had no mention in books

Puked after trying it, me and my dog Brooks..!!


My passion for Cooking was never under stake

At the age of twelve, I made a nice round cake..!!

There was nothing on earth that I hadn’t tried..,

From Milk with pickle to chocolate completely fried…!!


I knew, I believed I was no less than a Cordon Bleu

About culinary skills of mine, People had no clue…!!


My affair with cooking, was under wraps for long

Until I proposed a Waitress, with a romantic song..!!

To accept my proposal, ten long minutes she took

And only after hearing that I knew to cook..!!


The next two years I tell you, were a complete hell

On each new recipe of mine, she used to yell..!!


After very long years, a time really came

When I had to hang my head, down in shame…!!!

I was asked to cook for a party she threw,

I assumed I cooked a delicious stew…!!


Trying the dish, guests had really tough time,

I was accused of committing a terrific crime…!!


There and then ended oh my beloved friends, my COOK-A-TALE…….!!!!
