I sneak silently into the room,
A quick peak I take of my budding blooms,
Their breathing soft – rises and falls, a melodious rhapsody,
To the soothing sound of a Spanish symphony…

Their countenance silken smooth; serene,
Tugs my heart, an enticing scene, 
Each distinctly different, yet subtly the same,
Contrasting as night and day; asleep, they look- Oh! So tame, 
Their striking silhouette, in the mellow moonlit night,
Slightly stirring, they curl; enraptured I gaze at the sight…
One’s creamy-white skin peeps from the warm woolen quilt above,
And the other’s little chocolaty toe pushes its way from below,
One, strong and athletic; the other, dainty and petite,
Poles apart in every way; a miracle I behold, a divine treat.

The window slightly ajar, lets in the wintry wind,
Blowing their untied tresses over their satiny skin; I lean,
O’er their tender frames; and sweep the bouncy, brown curls away, 
And the silk-smooth strands of the other, as in deep slumber they lay,

Both unique, both special, both a part of me,
Peas in a Pod, they are and shall forever be.

  1. This was written so tenderly that my heart leapt with the overflowing love over one of the most pure kind of love in the world♥️ you are indeed gifted my friend, words magically string themselves together from your hands.


    1. I believe this is one emotion every mother feels when she sees her sleeping kids – immense love. All I can say is a big thankyou for your words. I must read your comments everytime I suffer writers’ block. XOXO


  2. Lovely Smitha, this strikes me as a magical, secret moment, the way you hint that they have a different presence asleep to the people they are when awake, and that special moment for you of watching over them.


    1. Oh that they are😊. They seem like angels when they’re asleep. Helps me fall in love with them all over again and forgive them the sins committed during the day😊. The night has a soothing effect.
