timeless: ratnagiri upon badin

today i feel like painting a picture
that in my mind i've drawn already
have yet to set up the easel
draw the outline, open the tubes
yet i know what i'll call it when finished
that image of Truth, Beauty, Peace
will call it timeless
it'll be the smile on the face of a child
i came across in ratnagiri
a child who could've felt just as at home
in the streets of badin
in rags, slightly disheveled
playing in the streets
with a tonka truck - three wheels missing
his smile said hope is alive and well
and no amount of injustice and disparity
will kill it

even his smiling eyes will effervesce
