Letter from Ancestor

Letter from Ancestor

My dear
I am long gone
but I wish you well
do not hurt the pigeons
let the mongoose live in the bushes
Ah…do you water the plants I planted?
the gulmohar, the deodar and the cedar
the mango bears fruits now…
give some to the children
the old neighbor’s health
but a faltering pain
visit you must

My dear
one day when you will be long gone
you’ll understand the small nothings
then write a letter to your young ones
wishing them well in life
just like how I wrote
life goes on

Hour 6
