Rookie - 488 Points (27/08/1977 / Dehradun, India)


Bald patches of earth bore olive green hair of silken
which swayed frivolously with swift currents of winter
snow white rabbits had a furry shock of hard hair,
galloped at electric pace through winding lanes of the
lethal alligators were adorned with a bush of needle
like hair,
glided with languid energy through deep waters of the
jungle river.
the maple trees possessed wild hair projecting from
their roots,
gave birth to a cluster of sweet fruit tumbling down
with sporadic outbursts
of wind.
pure bed sheets of silk had a plethora of feeble hair,
ready to get brutally crushed at instantaneous contacts
of bulky flesh.
the disheveled body of chameleon had sprouts of razor
edged hair,
tickled masses of insects, bare walls of brick as it
clambered up with
long handle of broomstick had infinite hair of cheap
scraped trapped molecules of dust and loiter from
remote corners of kitchen
the sparkling surface of ocean had ravishing hair of
struck colossal portions of jagged rock with
unparalled intensity of a wild
a bundle of crisp currency note had concealed hair of
had the tumultuous power to purchase all animate
objects on mother earth.
all humans born had fragile bunches of hair emanating
from their scalp,
the same grew into islands inhabited by deceit and
as advancing years crept, vanquishing immaculate hair
of childhood,
into traces of everlasting oblivion.
