A Heap of Debris
Hi Folks ! What follows is a reflection of my observations I fancy each morning amidst a slow cool breeze I subject myself to. Do let me know how you felt. A Heap of Debris...
I awoke this morning
to a breeze so gentle.
Kissing me, it moved some more and went afar,
lost in wilderness across the horizon.
Stretching a little, I realized
I was amidst a heap of debris
and wondered how desperation defeats one’s senses !
I pulled myself off the heap
and started walking to fetch some water.
Little away, I found some stagnant water
serving a couple of pigeons already.
I wished to shoo them away
but found myself way too small and sans courage
to entertain any thoughts of doing so.
I waited for them to finish and
only after they flew away far enough to not be seen with naked eyes,
did I wag my tongue in an effort to wet my throat.
Right across the street, then
I saw numerous puppies surrounding their mother;
jumping at her, trying to touch her face,
all of them.
And then in a moment,
they all put their muzzles to her innumerable nipples
and their mother gazed satisfied, as they sucked life.
