Weekly Photo Challenge : “Mine” – Through the eyes of an eight year old!

The photo challenge this week is ‘Mine’. ‘Mine’ as in belonging to ME, not ‘mine’ like ‘land mine’! Thankfully! cause god alone knows what I would have written for that!!! :) Though the term ‘mine ‘ itself is a landmine of sorts! Riddled with all kind of traps and fuses that threaten to destroy those who dare to tread on it carelessly!

Instead of the stuff I write usually,  ‘dark and sentimental’. For this challenge, I decided to post a poem written by my daughter – Mishthi . She wrote it this Sunday for a class assignment. Mishthi is eight years old, studies in third grade and is in love with words. The poem symbolizes  ‘ mine’ . But in an innocent way! A way that only a child can use the term. Hope you enjoy it :)

My Book

There is a book I have
With tales so ‘fab’
A princess locked in a tower
A man with such power
That mountains shake
Each time a breath he takes
I read it every night
At quarter to nine
And after I fall asleep
I dream of the stories I read
Of  Kings and queens I met
While lying
with my book in my bed

Mishthi Goel

III C

That she loves her book is quite evident! I am not sure how the teacher will like the poem. But I am definitely proud of these children of ‘MINE’

Mishthi with her Brother – A few years back!

    • zinal, I never wrote anything much at 8. So not my footsteps definitely :) :) !!! I hope she continues to write. right now she is just testing her wings! who knows for how long her interest may hold. But I do hope what you say comes true :)

  2. wow. sweet poem. She sure is good with words. Just eight years and she has written superbly.
    I am sure you are proud of her – and her poem is the most fitting for the mine challenge :)
    Not the mine mine :) I also got the same explosive mine in my mind when I saw the theme
