Life is a Treat – Story & Poem by Indu Varma

The inspiration for this print and the poem below came from my six-year  old grand daughter. She truly lives in the moment. For her, life is filled with fun, adventure and treats which make her today sweet & fun. In reality, tomorrow doesn’t exist. What exists is simply the present moment. If we can learn to live in the present without thoughts of the past or worries of the future, perhaps we would live each day more fully!

Imagination,                                                  Juggling ice cream cones,

Root of creation,                                          Jellybeans set as stones,

Ideas galore,                                                 Chocolate bar street,

Never realized before.                                 What a * “Bukadocious” treat!


Licorice and lollypop,                                  Smarties and candy kiss,

Slip, Slide, hop atop,                                    My oh my, what bliss!

Mr. Big, no small treat,                                Skateboarding, hunting for treasures,

I’ll take in a heartbeat.                                 Life consists of simple pleasures.


From one treat to next,                                  Imagine a candy world,

Running, jumping, nothing complex,           Inside you’re twirled,

No drudgery or stagnation                            Nothing could be more sweet,

Fun, imagination, & creation!                        Life’s simply a treat!!

 * Bukadocious is a word that Shaela coined to describe something which is totally off the charts awesome!
