1) Eyes Speaks All
Standing inside a bus, I saw him staring at me. His piercing gaze caught my attention. His eyes challenged me. Well, two can play this game! I stared right back at him and our eye-contact continued till the next stop. As I passed him, smiling and ruffling his hair, the little kid said "Bye Didi"!!
2) Splash of Color
“Red, Blue, Green, Orange... all those colours you sport yourself and yet you dare tease me??”
“Colourful, colourful, you are colourful!!” came the jeering.
“But it’s only a streak of pink”, she replied ruefully, checking out her new hair-do from the mirror.
“Behind her, the happy parrot continued to guffaw, “Colourful, colourful, you are colourful!!”
3) Mind Games
Tiny thoughts tickled my mind;
His tiny trots engulfed me to find.
Where did he go? Looked around;
Caught him disappearing behind the forbidden blind-fold.
I followed him, increasing my pace;
Was pulled back by man without a face.
His gurgling laugh made me scream.
“Mommy, wake-up! It’s just a dream!!”
Relief washed over me.
4) Flirt Fail
“Hey there, you need a ride?”
“No thanks, I’m married”, she flashed him her ring-finger.
“Come on baby, get in the car. I don’t mind”, he winked at her playfully.
She glared at him and continued to walk towards the house.
She turned back and yelled, “Honey, quit fooling around and bring in the groceries!”
