Never said my days are prosaic, never said they are resplendent.
Army green days o’ mine! Wind is caressing woodpecker’s nest.
Sometimes I spread my arms, the notion of flying, a gentle fascination.
Name of one or two stars, one or two notes of the melody, I learnt today.
Incessant sky; The sun sets
My thoughts, ever wandering, are boundless;
The lingerie falls down, touching those tender legs.
