The little things I admire about her

She waves at the security guard,

every day,

lending him a bit of change,

in his mundane work,

of staring at the road,

and passing vehicles.

 

Her eyes sparkle,

when she sees a random dog,

out on the streets,

she doesn’t mind speaking,

sweet nothings,

to the tiny aquatic fishes,

within the four glass molds,

while they stare with wonder,

at the pretty human.

 

she mirrors the pain,

of roadside dwellers,

Crafting jute items,

in the dim light,

while the half-open shed,

lends them rest for the day.

 

her transparent pouch is stuck,

with random heart-shaped stickers,

of different colors,

she bought when,

a small girl was selling it,

it Was too hard for her,

to ignore,

the sparkle in her eyes.

 

 

 

 

Colorful Earthlings from a Women’s College

Everyday, The scene is monotonous. There are buses, cars and bikes passing by on the road. Then, there are weary women and men from offices, having a cup of their favorite beverage from tea stalls, and children making their way through the footpath ridden with shops.

However, there is uneasy (read comfortable) silence surrounding it. It is break time for me and my friends. It is also the time when a women’s college shuts its doors and instantly activates a flurry of activity in the outside world.

Firstly, there are a set of devoted boyfriends in their bikes, patiently waiting for their girlfriends. One guy holds the bag while she loosens her hair and swift ties it into a bun while the other with a wayfarer is concerned to show off the bike’s roar and is ready to take off as soon as his girlfriend is on board.

Remember the devoted tea and coffee lovers who are involved in serious office discussions (read gossip). Like a lighthouse light, limited to a 180° angle, their shifting gaze and their side sliding heads are focused on the exiting earthlings who are dressed colorful apparel.

Third, the sudden influx of buses, share autos, cars and bikes creates a flutter of activity. There is a congestion. There is a screaming policeman in the center of the road, trying to smooth things on the road. Oblivious to the events surrounding him, It just another day for the policeman, who brings backs the calm after the chaos.
