five parrots fly by my window

and soon look like

flies on diamond head.

~

sun sketches an arc

before sliding in-between the

concrete bars and melting away.

~

five minutes of rain, and

five minutes of sunshine

just like life.

~

while the rainbow in the sky

mocks me here, I wonder

what is the rainbow of life?

~

if isolation is strength

this must be the mightiest

land on Earth.

~

for the air here heals

and the water too

and the smiles even more.

~

i am not the happiest here, and

life is not like riding

the clouds,

~

but I feel part of something

old, something wrinkled,

something that smells

~

like grandma’s house

and tastes like cauliflower curry

and rice boiled in milk.

~

and that makes me

hungry for more: and I

wake up

~

again,

and again.
