Kayts in the heart


For the mother:
destinations and how to get there
children and family
the household’s call

For the child:
a moment glorious
as splendid as the one before
and one that will follow
yet another reason to smile

For the road:
another traveler
the movement of life
in lorry and bus,
limousine and cart
and on many storied feet

It’s evening in Kayts
in another century
it must be dawning.

[a mother and child in Kayts at dusk;  from the coffee table book ‘Glorious Jaffna’]
