Bless This Home...!?

Ganesh Chaturthi
Yet another memory
Agarbati and laddus
Lined up textbooks
Leaves and fruits
Gathered in bunches
The haze is back
And the past, re-launches...

Yellowed books of shlokas
Peering over glasses
Very tip of your nose!
Pausing only for instruction
Over flames and flowers
Your prayers rose...

Maybe you forgot
To include the obvious
As you were wont to do...
Or did He need reminding
Albeit a mere technicality
That home, was you.

I'm sorry comments have been turned off. Especially to a couple of you who beat me to this change. Thanks for leaving your thoughts.
