LOOKING UP WAY UP
I look up to blue skies smoking white clouds puffy, to a map of sunlight glistening here, while her sisters weep in torrential monsoon rains.
Is it because the moon dances her way into ripeness that the stars twinkle in delight of cobalt nights and coquettish surrender?
Winsome are dreams of little girls who wait in tiredness for sugar plum fairies. Best they wait instead for charitable tooth fairies who leave small treasures behind.
Daylight greets trees leafy green, even if the rains have left droplets to create tiny rainbows at their edges.
green mangoes dangle -
boys will have to wait awhile
for their ripening
