Child’s Play

Child’s Play

Of His largesse imperial games,

adored spherical aqua ball.

Whirling it excited Him.

Packed with water and sand;

Decorated it green with trees ;

Placed vibrant flowers everywhere;

Multihued fruits ornate trees;

Everywhere green and blue,

made His eyes dull.

Placed dynamic lively dolls;

Puppet shows played everywhere;

Emotional dolls danced according to His wish;

Remotely controlled every progress ;

Active and alert are His moves.

And dear Creator,

in your childs play,

kindly compose my puppet show,

with love and care

making it a grand success.

    ” Child’s Play ” , is a vibrant and engaging poetic narrative dealing with hugely significant philosophical and existential questions in a dispassionate, faux naive style . An outstanding first post and share from our very newest member ! welcome Shalini Samuel to Destiny Poets !
