AN ODE TO OUR DEAREST FRIENDS (Poem)
A reunion so splendidly memorable With our friends so remarkably adorable We had a veritably rocking blast at “Ripples” That will eternally spray a perennial happiness in trickles
Our friends charming as ever and perennially wearing their glorious humourous hat On a T-shirts brilliantly designed by our dearest friends our respective "houses" with a cute cat
Games that we played till the stroke of dawn With all our friends on Ripple's verdant lawn Enjoyed the Kerala cultural shows With talented artistes on their toes Thanks to our friend for graciously coordinating the enchanting boatride With a flurry of excitement and beaming laughter on every side An unforgettable experience raking up our childhood memories Wth nursery rhymes and anthakshari over delectable curries Diligently framed by our dear friend her quiz With queries including people from show biz
All of us akin to a teenage lassie Full of spirit and exotically sassy Drooling over breakfast and lunch We were indeed a naughty spritely bunch Infinite thanks to our dear friends for their exquisite hand crafted gifts Not to forget their awesome keychain and chocolates, sweets and hair clips
Of messages, temples and swimming pool On swings and hammocks we were quite cool A birthday cake to commemorate our milestone Our "youthful" disposition to toast, we were indeed so prone Regaling all with "How we met our hubby” sessions Including our friend’s health and wellnesss lessons Not forgetting our friends morning yoga stint Surely, it did aid us to move around with a deerlike sprint!
Thanks to our dear friends for the beads selection For our reunion you all have been a benediction Renewing ties with our long lost friends, that helped cement our old friendship Was the highlight too of this splendid, mind -blowing trip Thanks to our friends for all help and the awesome companionship Thanks to them for being wonderful roommates and extending their hands of friendship Enjoyed all of your company, all of you so trendy Hats off to you all for being superbly friendly! We missed all our dearest friends who couldn't travel But in our minds, memories of you did unravel Dear Philo we paused to reminisce Certainly our memories of her could never diminish !
A get-together greatly fulfilling That lent a thrilling and satiated feeling We acknowledge our gratitude to all the initiators, planners and executors of this meet It was indeed a most memorable and ecstatic treat!
