Not like other days I am at the window.
I am waiting for my son who is on the way home.
He is bringing a surprise for me.
Told me over the telephone with hush-hush.
I was excited and was waiting for him.
Four buses came and went but he was not seen.
Thousand things I imagined as surprise.
I called him again he said just wait a little.
Then my patience broke how long to wait.
The door bell rang, it was our maid.
Then came my son with a smile.
The surprise was a ceramic wok.
“I love you Ma.Tomorrow you fry potato and fish in this”.
