CELEBRATION OF LOCAL: PARAMITA MUKHERJEE MALLICK

My Balcony  (21/4/19)

I sit and write in my balcony.
Expressing my thoughts, for passion not for money.
The sweet breeze caresses my cheeks.
The crows come and look at me, some answers they seek.
The rustling of the trees around, make me happy.
The play of the sunshine on their leaves I love to see.
The glowing red sun greets me in the morning every day.
Wiping out darkness and gloom away.
The moon comes visiting on a full moon night.
The mellow, silvery light around, what a beautiful sight!
The skyscrapers and the electric pole,
With their different shades of light, happiness doles.
My balcony gives me food for thought.
Shows me nature at its best, stopping my mind to rot.
