Skeletons in my cupboard
and post notes and photos about your poem like Unseeking Seeker.
Selfie at Wat Rong Khun temple, Thailand
was the screen saver on my mobile phone.
My three year old daughter asked ‘where’s this land?’
Heart fluttered, for I was not there alone,
so I murmured something in monotone.
Till date, when my daughter takes me aside,
if asked, I’d say she was a tourist guide!
Clandestine encounters of shady past,
from phone erased, in memory reside.
If truth revealed, my girl will be aghast!
Look at this place! poetry contest
