Napkin Notes IV

Dark Continent. Arid noon
The predators’ fast, the preys’ faster
Pride given up pursuing the herd

In April, a train of clouds
Summered at the horizon
In wait of the next season

In summer, a trail of mountains
Shed their caps and bared their heads
Under the scorching sun

Summer night, satellites scuttle for cover
As the nature’s own shimmers
In all glory over the ocean

Late summer afternoon, outside a school gate
Her squeaky shoes go squeak, squeak, squeak
The lil Angel has the world’s attention at her feet

Awww...this one is adorable. You should write about children more often. You capture the innocence really well, Eddy. :) Love them, be it Puttu or Angel.

P.S. All this while I visited your blog and thought that this is the previous post and didn't read it. I missed the no. in the caption :-/
