My Kohl-eyed*, daily dose of alluring quicksand,
breezes in with a whiff of petrichor
A billion bouncing twirling symphonies
surround me,
juxtaposed with a generous sprinkling of nebulous rainbows-

A bubblegum goes ‘Pop’. I surface.
‘One coffee, please’. Arrivederci.

*Kohl (Arabic: كُحْل ) is an ancient eye cosmetic, traditionally made by grinding stibnite for similar purposes to charcoal used in mascara.

Both of them need to change the way they are living. And who is going to do that? We… Parents. Change starts with us and today. Let’s. Make our contribution to a better society. However small.

    I think the setting is getting a little lost. Maybe inserting “the cafe” or something like it after “breezes in” will give readers a little more context and help them appreciate the meaning of “alluring quicksand.”

      Yes. I was wondering how I can tweak it to convey the setting better
