Morning Raaga

lady cooking

The swish of dosa batter,

Mustard spluttering in hot oil,

The morning sun rays

Playing hide-and-seek through the holed ladle,

And you, gaily singing rap in the shower;

The perfect chorus,

The perfect backdrop,

All that my heart needs

To burst into song.


PS: For the week’s prompt over at Weekend Wordsmith – Singing in the shower. A modified version of a pretty memory worth preserving for life. πŸ™‚
