A Village Near Bangkok--By Isha Wagner--New Zealand

A Village Near Bangkok

Shadows stroll along the dimly lit road
slowly begging clear light of day
to give semblance to illusion's play

And I speak soft words so they may
hear the whispers that surround
inaudible to the little Thai woman
carrying a straw basket of white eggs

She thinks she is alone on the grey pave
but the shades of dark pursue laughing at her
tiny wrinkled face that belies wisdom

I stumble across her holding out my hand
for one fragile egg
so she can sense my reality
