A CHILD’s FANTASY
PHOTO PROMPT © Janet Webb
By Neel Anil Panicker
As a child she lusted for gifts.
She would peep in through pigeonhole slits, past the glass sharded high walls of her landlord’s palatial villa, careful not to hurt her eyes, and salivate at the merriment inside.
Her heart would yearn for the gorgeous gifts that hung from low lying branches of the heavily bedecked Christmas tree.
Envious eyes would watch her landlord’s daughters as they happily ran around the football sized garden, singing soulful carols, their tiny hands holding on to delectable goodies.
It was a life, a wonderment she could only dream about, never ever aspire to experience.
