An old farmhouse

An old man in a Nehru jacket

A dog and his yellow collar

A farmhand with her sleeping baby

A cricket, deaf and mute

A tractor without torque

A tree without its favourite lark

A toe ring without its feet

A wrist without its bracelet

A house without its master

Things beautiful and terrible

Tragic and joyful

Seen and unseen

with eyes and with my hands

stand the test of time

approval of the falling sands

an old farmhouse, and its many inhabitants.
