Car- bus- bus- car- bike- green light- red light, moon light; I crossed the street!
I walked inside Udupi Garden!
Beautiful, well-maintained, tree-shaded park!
People were walking and talking, neat and clean business meetings!
I sat on abbey of stones, which carved into a heavy two-folded bench!
A child was shouting loudly… once, twice, and then repeatedly,
A bunch of sticks in his hand,
He shouted by the names of his friends, nameless, faceless, no one replies!
Streetcars and street-dogs were running naked, barking horns,
He grabbed the Iron Gate tightly,
He jumped up! It moved slowly left to right, right to left,
He gaged, people hardly knew his parents,
He shivered, he lost voice, he was little!
City means large buildings, MacDonald’s, expensive cars,
For him, no foods, no friends, no harms!
An old man crossed me towards the next bench,
He observed it was full of golden city dust,
His half-bald golden hairs were shining on the streetlights,
He pulled out a handkerchief, and blew the dust,
Three mid-aged women were passing by, giggled on his act!
The old man absorbed silently; he smiled,
Life at Udupi garden seems no harms!
“Life means two hearts, when they sing the well-known song together!”
I left the garden; left a mark on sweat; sweat on stone!
Good-bye Udupi garden! Please take care of my friends!
Trees, winds, and clouds… see you again!
With love, hugs and kisses!
