The nature of desire

In the house
where the 'bou bou' lives
there is a tree
with golden flowers.

Baby doesn't like 'bou bou'
yet love flowers.
When bou bou went outside
we collected those flowers.

Baby looked for 'bou bou'
and threw the flowers away

If there is no 'bou bou'
who needs those golden flowers?

Baby doesn't like "bou bou" but he throws away the flowers he liked when he didn't see the "bou bou". What an expression of innocent love.
Good one.

Oh My God.. That was really so innocent and yet so so true... :)

I remember, as a kid, there was this german shepherd near our house who used to get extremely irritated with the noise we used to create, playing cricket... and of course with that ball being thrown here and there.. Dont know if it were having fun or what scaring us by its thundering barks.

We stopped playing cricket there after the dog fell ill and was put to rest for good...

No bou bou... no fun... no cricket...

All Nostalgic..
