Meeting Meeta

meeta

Meeta came from Dilli last week

We met after ten years or so.

She brought us all clothes from Kaladera

Vegetable-dyed, don’t you know?

Sunny was nursing a migraine at home

But was here, in the spirit, so to speak.

Just one phone call from him, and

Our ears were ringing for a week.

From morning to night, and then some,

There were conversations over cups of tea

About their doings, and ours, about friends,

and arts and crafts and People Tree.

p1010053

She climbed a tree with Varuna’s help

Egged on encouragingly from below;

And opened a shop in the Nesting Grounds;

And then it was time to go.

She has promised to come again soon

And Sunny , too, next time.

Then there’ll be more stories, louder conversations,

And perhaps a longer rhyme.

    How lovely that Meeta visited you. Also, those clothes she brought you remind of my People Tree days. Did you guys know I worked there a little while?
    I want to visit you too, so badly. Omar will most certainly meet you guys soon.
