HINDI ACHE for contest

                                                      THE HINDI ACHE

                                            Hands that jerk you on the train
                                            That you have missed by just a hair
                                            While voices urging your success
                                            Perfume the ride with extra flair.

                                           The air abounds with sounds and smells
                                           That nearly knock you off your feet
                                           And children dance in your parade
                                           With smiles that make your day complete.

                                           The poverty that hits the heart
                                           Seems unimportant to the crowds
                                           Embracing life from day to day
                                           Adoring family --ramrod proud.

                                           The colors dazzle—glorious shades
                                           (No camera ever captures this)
                                           The flower markets stun the soul--
                                           Surpass the wildest lover's kiss.

                                            Time plays tricks--the ticket calls
                                            Home again one need return--
                                            But tries to ease the Hindi ache
                                            With tear filled eyes --as incense burns.

    Thanks, Rick....have been doing the Alaska summer outdoors life--which means no computers, just inhaling summer and gazing at snow topped mountains....life couldn't be better than this.....(or so we Alaskans think!) thanks for reading and commenting! V

    What a great way to dive into my contest. I really liked this. I think you captured a lot with this poem and the last two lines held me, just as they should. Congrats on your win and thanks for entering this!

    Cyndi, I have not been online. Here in Alaska, summer is a time to be outdoors--even when it is raining! Thanks for offering the contest-- I enjoyed the experience especially since it drew on memories that I had never put to paper. Victoria
