A VIEW - poetry my way .................................

Two floating kites
Appearing and disappearing
And
Kissing each other

A floating pure – white cloud
Moving slower and faster sometimes

No – Dark purple flowers
Smiling at sun – shining

The breeze comes and touches and moves away,
Supplies melodies to relax ………………

The kichi – bichi of an unknown

A half dead and torn coconut leaves

The jack leaves tabulating life

What are they all trying to say?

A tiny branch of neighboring jack tree gone dried

A man from a distance opened a window to embrace cool wind I assumed
And again after a few moments

He shut them tightly and went away

The roof tops – some
Look burnt

Is the tank up on roof

Filled

Or

Empty?

No one to be seen to inquire

Why should I

Realized, learnt later

The kreeeeezzzzzze sound of the fan – above
Seemed ready to be retired

Everything outskirt enjoying life over there

Nothing to assume I thought ………………………………….

Hi Sandika,

I love your poem. In fact, I read it twice. I will be changing planes in Sri Lanka in December and will look out of the plane to see if I see your kite !
