The Eyes have it !

My friend Shail Mohan of Thiruvanantapuram, clicks leaves, lights, clouds, butterflies, birds, fences et al, but bows to Luci Shail when it comes to human expressions, if you know what I mean.

Luci Shail also blogs .   Shail recently posted the photo below with the caption , "Luci Shail, statue !" ....

While statues do bring to mind certain statue obsessed individuals , in, say, politics,  it is imperative to know that Luci Shail clearly has other things on her mind.

Unlike some folks I see on TV ,  she thinks.  With her eyes.

Speak to me only with thine eyes
and I will click
with mine...

shocked about
things happening to little girls
in a so called civilized world.

about so many
who do not have
half the freedom she has

in Army style
at smart attention
much in practice
for the approaching Independence Day

And sometimes,
on seeing Mom pack,
a silent drama
in protest
willing her
not to go.

At the end of the day,
the Eyes have it ...


  1. One of your best so far Suranga. I really love this one! :)

  2. Beautiful - both the eyes and the words :)
