The Caressing Courtyard

Trees growing out of concrete,

seemed to happen a lot in these walls

and courtyards.

Under one of them, there is a temple.

It is a small shrine next to a Peepal tree,

just like you find in rural India.

The slanting winter sun shines its way

through the leaves, onto the radiant

structure. Nothing could take away from

this feeling of being in a small town village,

an almost feverish feeling of being

transported.

I wish I could spend a little

bit more time in the comfort of these

branches, feel protected just for

a little more while.
