Myriad colours of earth
A tiny patch of land lies outside my window
Someone’s postponed plan for a home
Became my blessing on earth!
A green oasis in concrete desert.
Some trees, bushes and vines
Which bring birdsong in the morning
Cricket and fireflies rule at night
A little breeze of respite amongst buildings.
