A white little notebook
Had glimpses of him
Dried petals
To remind me of
the very first love …

Maroon hard bound book
Dog eared pages
Of ‘The sleeping beauty'
First dreams and fancies
Gifted by dad …

Black fountain pen
that pernicious little thing
tricked the world
into numerical magic
on my scandulous marksheet..

A rolling pin
Miniscule stove
A broken arm of a
Blonde porcelain doll
Treasured pieces of
A memorable childhood
