two mango trees       [shi]

Balcony view --

with oil-sketch in progress (just added the trees this morning, their leaves yet to be added)

plus associated poem . . .


two mango trees   are growing in the yard
sweet koels and bulbuls   sing amid the green

imagine if you will   (it's not too hard)
that life could yet discover   such a scene

I'm here alas   so brief   in this serene
and happiest of abodes   beside the lake

at times   one senses destiny   so keen
at times   the wakening heart is apt to break
