Crayons Unlock A Pandemic
by Dr. Sunil Sharma
Bookmark and Share
 
Finding light within---
important
in the surrounding darkness,
despite the sodium-vapour lamps
lighting the exteriors of the familiar
landscapes 
and a warm wind
on cold nights!
 
The houses are now prisons
in high-rises, 
the residents await a quick release
much hoped-for
than real
as the pandemic rages on....
 
and a crippled
girl-child
in a dim-lit hovel, nearby
the towers
 
weaves birds in full flight
on the white pages of
an old diary
of a dead mother
 
the crayons
unlock quickly
easily---
 
startling
newer worlds!
