ND (19, April,1951 / kalubovila East, Sri Lanka)


She works in a doughnut outlet
as a part-time in the evenings
and the day time she goes
to a high school.
A handsome Shoeshine
shone in the sunlight
with his sachet on the pavement.
Nothing to be surprised
and they are eternal lovers
under the vast sky.
It's always and everywhere
there are obstacles
occur to the innocent love.
In the Municipality
the Mayor has passed a bill
to clear the road of vendors
and the doughnut shop was closed
as the Proprietor in bankruptcy.

You seeing with compassion and strength in the visual art of those that work so hard Well done with this one Love duncan X
A charming little story poem. But what a sad ending. I am sorry for both of them. Happiness can be as fragile and fleeting as a butterfly. Take care, Nimal. Kind regards, Sandra
