The Blue Chrysanthemums (Wordless wednesday no.17)

I stumbled upon this wonderful poem,
I just had to mail it to him.

He slipped away from work at lunch time,
Hiding these blue chrysanthemums
Behind his back.
And he rang the bell.

I laughed in delight
At the unexpected surprise
And he looked at me with a kind of look that comes
Only when love burns with an intense depth

No words were needed
His eyes said it all
But still he said them to me,
"For the most beautiful woman, in my eyes,"

I smiled to hide my bashfulness, my joy
And asked him to have lunch
But my heart had already begun to hum
And it was hard to drown the song.


I still hear the music.
And I smile.
I feel Cherished and loved
The best feeling to have.

The perfect pet

A personal note from me to you

What amazing and loyal readers I have! No wonder I keep posting so regularly despite having such a crazily hectic schedule. I also gave my blog a new makeover. It now has all the links right on top, to all the stuff I do, which was missing earlier. I really like the new look and I am sure you will too. The notebook was getting a bit too cluttered and one could not find the tabs. This one is so much simpler, neater and cuter too :-) [New improved like the adverts go] I even managed to fit my 'current mood video' in a tiny box--do listen to it for an instant 'perk me up' feel :-)
So many of you discovered that my blog has beennominated for 'Best personal Blog' by Indibloggies and you wrote to me saying you have already voted for me--even before I asked! I was really surprised by the number of mails I got--A big thank you to all of you who wrote to me and voted for me too.

And if you have been a silent reader it would take you only a minute of your time to make amen…
