This is my first ever post for the Pic and a Word Challenge by Patrick Jennings. This week’s word is wheels. Here’s a link to Patrick’s blog


I took this picture on Saturday when I was at the movie theater watching The Farewell with my sister. I would definitely recommend the movie. It was such a wonderful and beautiful movie. I chose to use this as my wheels picture because it is a picture of the film reel or film wheel.


This is another picture that I took about wheels and it is a picture of Lord Krishna driving Arjuna’s chariot right before the Kurukshetra War started.  This picture is of the time when Lord Krishna gives Arjuna the life lessons which are now known as the Bhagavad Gita.

Here’s a post for last week’s word loss. Here’s a link to Patrick’s blog


This is a picture of a bouquet that my sister’s best friend sent us after we got the double dose of loss after our mother’s best friend passed away suddenly June 29 and my husband of two years emailed me that he wanted a divorce on Father’s Day.

This is a poem that I wrote today in memory of my second mother.

You never told us that You’re leaving
I never even got to say goodbye.
You died exactly two weeks after I saw you,
And only Jaganmohan Uncle knew why.
A million times we needed your support,
A million times we cried.
If our prayers could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place,
That no one will ever fill.
I will miss visiting your home,
I will miss secretly being given chocolate.
You were my second mom,
You were such a unconditional support.
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day Lord Vishnu took you home.
