Swinging in the sideways
Dancing in the sunshine
Wringing curls of shrubbed hairs
Locked in messy line

Tumpa was a lazy kid
His tum was ne’er full
Dull he was a li’l dull
Always seemed (to be) on lull

Tumpa — a quick Sketchbook doodle by James Paul. Verses scribbled on 27/03/2013

Ruddy cheeks and ginger head
Squintly lids and slackly paws
Lazy laze in timber bed
Smelled of applesauce

Lazy laze he dozed off dreaming
(of) Giant noodly worms crawling in the air
Mighty scared he woke up screaming
Oh! twas just his unkempt hair

the stiff still dandelion stirred,
in the gentle sober breeze.
whirling and twirling,
floating in the wind.
swaying in joyful cadence.

gorgeous beautiful petals. inked.
the florets shyly blinked.

“scandalous!” proclaimed a bird,
as the dandelion ballet with the bees.
whirling and twirling,
floating in the wind.
blissfully serenading in her life’s renaissance.

थोडू सा रो
If u feelin low
थोडू सा हँस
Cuz life’s such a fuss

खुद से लड़
अकड़ ना अड़
If life’s a mess
मत्थे न किसी के मढ़

An Ol’ man — Quick sketch by James Paul | Ref : Andrew Loomis

थोडू सा बैठ
थोडू contemplate
थोडू सा रुक
If life’s dangling on a hook

थोडू सा झुक
Grab that dusty book
थोडू पलट थोडू सा पढ़

कबूल अपने भूलचूक
संजीदगी से आगे बढ़

जारी |to be contd
