The Pink shoes

The Small pink shoes, with a ribbon,
Were smiling at me
Peeping through the glass of the shop, so relaxly,
So proudly
Took me around the nets of my sister (in law)
And inquired’
“How are you these days?”
And tried to read, not just her face,
Her whole sole
Have I succeeded?
No matter
I read, continuously, her thoughts
And tried, to see through her, through the threads and wools
Chosen and knitted
“What is she weaving, whole heartedly ?
What is the colour of the chosen thread?
Is that her choice, pure?
Is it inevitable?
No! That is her samsaric wish
I read her, (not) enough
No! could not estimate anything accurately
oh!
And yes, the materials, soft or silky?
I got no answer
The Pink Shoes took me around the nests of neighbours
Unethical, I know
Yet I continued went around, peeped through the windows,
Listned through walls  
Unethical, I know
 “What is she sewing”?
“What colour she has chosen”?
They must have asked
I thought,
For a moment,
Sitting at the edge of a house (neighbour’s),
Unethical I know
Yet ………………….
Tried snapping
I tried mapped, their curiosities, their weights of mind?
Anxious Neighbours', I thought
My imaginaries floated, eneldlessly here and there,
around her nest of love
The Pink shoes took me around the mind of my brother
I scripted, the lines  
”shall we scan”
“No need to scan”
“Your features says who will come”
“I can’t wait”
“No let’s wait”
“What is your choice?”
“I want a child”
“Son or daughter no point knowing”
“Child is a child”
The pink shoes took me around the nest of sister’s sister (in law’s sister)
“Did you go to the clinic?”
“What does the kind mid – wife tells you?”
What did the good doctor tell you?
“Is the weight enough”?
“What did you eat?
“Shall I bring you something to eat?”
The pink shoes took me around her (my sister’s in law) world
“Did you get the Rubella?”
I adviced her like a mother of a hundred
Did you take your calcium supplement?
No! Do not go for supplements
Eat a right diet
Ah! Do not forget your iron and Zink
Fresh greens
And a glass of MILK  : - )
The pink shoes took me around book shops,
Shopping Malls world wide
‘What should i buy?’
A book, a fairy tale?
And a little booklet of Sibil wettasinghe
What should I buy?
A bag of toys?

The Pink shoes took me around the universe
