A perfect garden – leveled, lush and growing;
leave chimneys’ pulse, tin cities, in your wake,
fly low on leafy lanes and endless highways;
this garden stretches mountains to mangroves.
Tender fields are lawns too fine to step on,
homesteads hide in shady fruiting trees;
crop residues neat piled are mushroom mountains,
ducks lure weary gardeners to cool ponds.
Graceful trees line tempting paths and alleys,
saris splash red colours in warm light,
playing children’s perfect animation,
cows and goats chew thoughtfully on green.
