  1. Wonderful, Kritika.

    A magnificent poetic tribute to author Rowling.

    It reminds me of the first time I read a Rowling Harry Potter book.

    My dad and I had booked an overnight room in a motel in the small but very interesting city of Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada whom author Rudyard Kipling had mentioned in some of his writings.

    We had stayed in the motel a year before and found it wonderful.

    But in the subsequent year, it had changed management.

    My dad had booked the motel room (a large room) 3 months before as we generally stayed in Medicine Hat on our way back from our annual summer trip to the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

    When we arrived, the motel clerk said they had no reservation for us which was strange because my dad had called to confirm it the night before we left for Saskatchewan so we’d be assurred everything would be a-ok on our trip.

    They said on the phone they had our reservation and we’d have the same room as the year before.

    When we got there though after our holiday in Saskatchewan, they said they had no reservation for us and the only thing they said they could offer us was another room which we could take or leave.

    The room really wasn’t much bigger than a broom closet.

    There was no room to walk around and no chairs.

    Only one single bed to sit on.

    My dad and I suspected our reserved room had been given to a large wedding party that was staying in the motel.

    All the large rooms were given to the wedding party guests (the next few years we stayed at another motel in Medicine Hat so they lost our business for several years running because of their greedy boneheaded underhanded dishonest move).

    Anyways since there wasn’t much room in the room, I walked to a nearby shopping centre and went into a Zeller’s Department Store (then a large department store chain in Canada which has since gone belly up).

    I went to their book department and looked at their books.

    I saw the Harry Potter books and I reflected I had heard of them and they were given rave reviews.

    Not sure which was the 1st book in the series, I just looked at the covers.

    I was attracted to the cover showing Harry in a flying car as I had always been fascinated by the concept of flying cars ever since I was a kid.

    So I bought that book (it turned out to be the 2nd in the series).

    I then went to a coffee shop restaurant next door to the motel (which wasn’t owned by the motel otherwise I wouldn’t have given it my business).

    I ordered a coffee and a blueberry pie and began reading.

    I was totally captivated by the book.

    When I finally looked up at the clock, 3 hours had past since I entered the coffee shop.

    Time had quite literally flown by.

    Reading this wonderful poem of yours brought back memories of what I thought would be a miserable dismal evening turning out to be a wonderful magical night of enchantment because it was the first time I read a Harry Potter book.

    1. I am really happy that it reminded you of the day of reading the first Harry Potter book. Alas! I was not able to read it because of the missing pages in the pdf file which broke the rhythm. Anyways would be glad to have a hard copy of it soon.

      Time flies really fast than one can think. A coffee and a blueberry pie with a magic book in hand. Wow a great combination I must say.

      Thank you for appreciating kindly πŸ™‚

    1. I am really not happy to say I could not read it whole. The pages went blank as I scrolled. 😦
      A corrupted file. (Angry)
      It is love and such imagination is hard to find. Do read Salman Rushdie too. He is a great writer and his imagination too is amazing.

      1. Aw dang… was it the official purchased version? Shouldn’t happen… sorry to hear it.
        Salman Rushdie… my dad had at least one of his books, probably more. I will look for it/them, next time I’m there… thanks for the recommend :)) πŸ“–βœ…βœ¨

    1. It was fun. Know what I found another pdf of it online and I read through it. Fantabulous book. Love the magical write the writer has put into it. The book in itself is magic. Cheering the inner child to discover and uncover more of the secrets.
      Thank you kindly for the comment. I am really sorry for the late reply. (Heart) πŸ™‚
