Treasure Island

Ranjit Ravindran

(12-12-1982 / Visakhapatnam)

Squeaky Armour


Shoes with whistle, I still remember,
Guarded my feet like a squeaking armour;
Every step applauds with squeaks,
And showered kisses on the cheeks.

This is in response to Joy(Haiku) , by Ms. Mamta Agarwal. This haiku made me remember how I ran across the streets wearing a pair of whistling shoes, how the squeaks attracted attention of the onlookers who planted kissess on my chubby cheeks.

Thank you Ma'am for raking up my sweet childhood memories.

    What sweet thoughts of an adorable little boy.
    Our memories are special treasures, especially
