My imagination paints me young


A riot of colours greets on the way
Green, orange, red bougainvillea sway
Taking me to the rainbow valleys
Where as a child I swing from tree twigs

Birds sing songs of love as in concerts
Butterflies fly on flowers as flirts
Funny faced monkeys swing with long arms
Almond eyed squirrels holding nuts, charm

Brooks shining as diamonds gurgle downhill
A velvet green adorning as frills
A bridge joining paths from east to west
Where only love laughter and peace nest

Kids running carefree and elders chase
Playing to heart’s content in end, embrace
No diseased or old, all live long, young
Nature in full bloom man’s companion

On my life canvass splashes just fun
My imagination paints me young
