Our prompt for the day (optional as always) follows Gowrishankar’s suggestion that we write a poem re-telling a family anecdote that has stuck with you over time.
The phone rang. It was my younger one
How was the day dear daughter?
‘full of eggs and a bit of a disaster’
Oh dear hope all is well and everyone ?
Oh Ammi it was an egg day to day’
I fell asleep after lunch…’egg day?
Yes I was so exhausted I dozed off.
for long I was in the land of dreams.
When I woke up the girls were resting
but the boys, on their bicycles, outside…
well? I was getting a bit anxious now…
I went to call them I almost fell over.
Oh Dear God’what spirit flew before…
‘I slipped on something and taking a
closer look found lots of broken eggs
just outside the kitchen door’
Rayyan 7 and Abdullah 3 experimented a
lesson of science,research and curiosity
led them to seek and find, who came
first the egg or the rooster, or chicken dame.
‘Mama there were no chicks in any of the eggs’
our science teacher said there would be, we
checked all the twelve,in the fridge lying
where else we could check, we both were trying.
scientific learning is based on practicals
Its good to be curious but dangerous also,
a Teacher must be professionally trained.
Mama had a lot to clean and much to explain.
