Tale of the Blue and the Stripes


The deserts of India stood barren and naked,
While the nilgai roamed the short shrubs.
On land was nothing but sweltering sun,
The prey stood alone grazing its food.
Stealth in pace, came the beast's paws,
The eyes took heed of the bluish coat,
Made its aim on the white patched neck,
Least bothered of the adorned, sharp horns.
Stripes once again shined enormously.
The blue bull sensed its predator and ran,
It made its way through the open land.
Unhurriedly the beast retreated its aim,
And the wait continued, the story unended.
Vast lanes of the desert witnessed peace.

I always wonder at times jealous the way you use words. Precise yet brings out effectiveness of the subject you deal with. Thanks for sharing.

Suhasini Srihari said...

Haha... Jealous... This minimal knowledge of words that I have is because of the little reading that I have done over the past few years. Sometimes, I struggle to get the right words, but at times, they simply flow. I will work for much better and effective piece. Thank you for reading through!

Suhasini Srihari said...

Words are all I have indeed. But the articulation needs years more of training and experience, perhaps a lifetime. Thank you Dexter, for being so sweet!
