Granny, we have come!


Crossing hills and plains,
In an eight hours drive.
Fighting for sitting
By the window side,
Singing songs to
While away time,
Finding paradise
After a dusty cart ride.
Granny, we have come!

Linking up with Trifextra : Week Forty-Seven : This weekend we want you to give us a pithy summary of your feelings about the holidays.

  1. This reminds me of driving home to my parents with our kids. Except our dust is usually goldfish crumbs. :) Thanks for linking up!

    1. Joyful bus rides for me. Followed by a few minutes in a cart or an auto-rickshaw.

  3. Eight hours is quite the haul! You brave soul (: But I'm sure it's worth it every time.

    1. Eight hours is what restricts the visit to holidays. And it is totally worth it. Family, cousins, bliss.

  5. My sentiments, exactly...or my kids' rather. We just had another long long trip to visit their grandparents for the holy days. Your poem described the whole thing for us. :-)

    3. I know. You were so focused there and plus it goes for both the prompts so it is easy to mix up.

  8. Sounds like a lot of fun, especially the cart ride although I think I would enjoy that more as a child than adult. Great job!
