Poem by Debabrata Mohanty
Take your pick
Dance with a toddler
How piquant are his steps!
What a soothing relief
When at the doorway await your pets!
How light and lifted is your mood
While caressing the passing breeze!
What amazing cool placates the sense
When it’s lost breathing under the trees!
What wonders it brings
when eyes steeped in a rose!
The bees in rapture plead for love
How cleverly they steal your woes!
What happier things you seek
To flash a smile on your lips?
Unburden your tinselled heavies
To choose from among the heaps.
