The Perfect Painting

Brown and black hues
Tattered rags
Whimpering cries
A baby suckling
Through the torn shirt
A woman looking starved
Trying to feed her baby
Right there
Beside that alley
Eyes dimmed with sorrow
No sparkle in anything
Trying to cover her baby
With her tattered stole
Only bright colour
Her love for her kid
Framed this painting
Is now on a wall of my mind
A perfect painting
That moves my heart
Every now and then
Could melt million hearts
Every now and then....

    I enjoyed the unique direction you took with your entry, Irfana. What could be more perfect than seeing a woman trying to provide as best she could for her child? Congratulations on your success in the contest! Carolyn

    This is so sad and real. It is a sad reality for to many women. You bring attention that is much needed.
