She walked along with her grandfather. He was supervising the construction of a boundary wall. On a whim, he picked up a stick and wrote her name, on the fresh cement wall. As he has intended, it brought a smile on her face.

Much has changed over the years, from emptied rooms, to shrinking menus, and minimized garden. The man is long gone. For now, that scribbled name survives.

A Memory Entwined Within A House

My Grandmother’s House – by Kamla Das

( an extract)

I received love ……. That woman died,

The house withdrew into silence, snakes moved

Among books, I was then too young

To read…

My Grandmothers House
Houses have souls, series.

  2. Can’t decide what I love more…the writing or the sketch! Whenever I visit an old house, I always wonder about the lives of the people who built it and lived in it…Will be back for more. #A2ZChallenge

    1. Thanks 🙂 … I’m obsessed with architecture and can keep exploring and writing about it 🙂
      Both sketches are made with black gel pen and copic pens, the second one is colored with watercolors and edited digitally to sepia tone .
