BRINGING IN A SOFA

 



On the floor, off the mat

We all sat, slept & ate

Flooring of mud but broom laid

Cream of cow dung applied.

Life was simple though not smooth

Bit of course with pins and needles

All of it took years of strain &pain

To have a floor of cement paste

Life became a little fine

With no fear for straw/ pine or rain.

 

After long years of earnings and savings

Came a glossy floor of mosaic

Squares of many laid across

Life began to show finesse and patio

With dearness and dare to dream

Aloof came a wind of betterment

Which brought with it a

Reflection of steps of success

A smooth finish of marble floor

Start of prosperity and a sign

Of sapling growing into a plant.

Attaining a growth visibly and not

 Easy adding in an element of luxury

In the marble floor

By

Bringing in a sofa made of velvet

Like a beautiful craving brought out a Rough stone

Hard work ways

Patience pays is what

Life says.
