Treasure Island

Harindhar Reddy

(Sept/19/1983 / Haliya, Hyderabad, India)

Traffic Jam with Invisible Animals


Green, yellow and red aren't my darling colors but pure lights of
Traffic with some wish in my witty kit – Snowy white graceful
Gardenia requests you to love and forgive others freely –
Faithful blues from the sky iris says never give up
The dreams of your heart – Wide-eyed kid, the
Youthful lilac asks to let your inner child
Run wild – Lovely blooms of the Garden,
Gathered in a crowd with others,
Jostling for a space, waiting
In the jam To get the nod
From the traffic
Constable
In me.
Not
So long
Ago, in a bar
Barren land of far
Foreign invisible woods –
Masked foxes, wild boars,
Proud lions and mighty tigers
Are hunting for the meat – In the
Same jungle agname argle-bargle – gentle
Deers, timid hares, foolish donkeys and carless
Zebras are grazing grass to fill their stomachs – Just a
Few animals to name that thronged my road alias genuine dull scull.

    The experience of visiting a small zoo that is obviously visible casts a feel of excellent association with this world around we all. A good write Mr Reddy. Keep writing. (Report) Reply
