startling banals

12 September 2007

such continuous drizzle sky overcast as if it will never lift still a fresh breeze blows soothing nostalgia about campus lazy days wet black grey roads lazier clouds rest on violet green hills cows walk in no hurry make dung cakes for us to cut struggle to keep cigarette dry lazy smoke comes out thicker than usual same colour as clouds trees drip big drops that fall faster when they sway in the wind dark afternoons no light on purpose to enjoy lying in cosy bed small trek to staff canteen loose change a ten rupee note in pocket dearest friends share tea and smoke converse happily about life in general cut to present eight silent sparrows sit in a line on bare tree branch under lush leaf cover as i watch madly happy for no reason confident i can fly
