Shadow We Need

Scenic, picturesque and serene
Coconut trees, grazing cattle

Well orchestrated dividers
Black top roads absorbing the sun
Presence of vernacular all around

Shadow we need
However shallow our interests be.

-

Pale, parsimonious and pampered
Ponds, plains and peels

Reassuring oneness 
Mosques, temples and churches

Shadow we need
However shallow our interests be

--

Bricks, bridges and beliefs
Sun, salt and sundry

Serving one taste
North, east and south

Shadow we need 
However shallow our interests be

---

Mango laden trees
Plantains in bloom

Smiling watermelons as if enjoying 
the sleep in the sun
Glassy constructions 
telling tales of modernity

Shadow we need
However shallow our interests be

----

Beaches, breaches and beacons
Sand, saplings and sundae

Free from French
Fermenting flavors

Shadow we need 
However shallow our interests be
