Word High July:Makisig

GGbyNancyLeeMoran

Little boy’s birthday it is, at his home

There came his friends little ones

With gifts in hands simple gifts packed with love their friends

Stars,ribbons,balloons decorated the room,dangling from above

Little gentlemen, mothers combed their hair in proper shapes

Little ladies, mothers tied their hair in ponytails sideways

The group of children immaculately dressed looking dashing, gorgeous

Little ones though playful but in such attires becoming conscious

Of not getting stain on fabric, but remain jubilant, playful

The birthday boy is glad, happy to see

His friends all looking so nice!

His mother brings the cake now,

Let the celebrations begin!

(PostScript: I write this scene recollecting my elder brother’s birthday, several years ago. That day, his friends had arrived in a very formal way. In young, going to other’s house for any occasion, the mothers would dress up the child to make him o’ her look like gentle men and ladies. And since I had always seen his friends in shabby outlooks, that day, seeing them so immaculately carrying themselves, did leave a lasting memory in my mind. Additionally, I would like to mention that I have been inspired by Keith Garrett for attempting a poetry in this style.He does this style really well! )
