Three by Prateek Kuhad


Artwork by Swetha G Nambiar

Those clunky, rose and blue hues

matched intensely with her shockingly

furry royal navy

blue coat, fitted

with an almost militaristic

precision.

The black figure beside her

was whispering humbly

in strange foreign verses

seemingly intended

to comfort her.

Those goofy, orange, striped stockings

make me wonder.

Tinkling colors

strewn clumsily across the floor

surrounded by smudged crayons

orange, pink and blue

reminding me of a world

I might never

see.

Makes me wonder

how might I have been

when I was

three.
