Narrow eyes

With two narrow windows on either side, the door is only ajar with the man who froze in the path somewhere near the hillock. Above the hillock were cloudlets frozen and they cannot rain their monsoon because the man should reach waiting eyes in the window anytime.

Woman’s eyes were faint behind the rusted window rails.The birds in their v’ s are however frozen in their skies in the West. The palm beside the hillock is heavy with fruit in its frond.

There is no relief for the woman’s eyes. In such stillness how can there be any respite?

But the iron rails have not stopped rusting.
