Hand shadow artists

Hand shadow artists
On this balmy
September afternoon,
In the suburban Mumbai,
Two kids riding pillion,
On a Japanese bike,
Returning home,
Happy and excited,
After a busy day,
In school,
Creating
Shadowy
Figures of a
Surprised
Rabbit,
Bird in flight,
Boy yawning,
Kangaroo dancing,
Through the clever
Movements of the
Tiny but expert
Hands,
On the
Silent
Street,
Under a kind
Sun
Smiling
At their
Hand shadow
Kinetic art.
