A girl in white stands with the right pigtail defiantly slung on her left shoulder.

There at the corner bleary-eyed moms stand waiting for dirty yellow buses to take their kids to reluctant schools.

It had rained last night on the black plum tree and then there was wind and violet rain from the tree.

The puddles under the tree were violet with the tiny ripe fruits mashed under feet in rain water and mud.

The woman takes the white dog for a walk but the dog pulls her sideways for sniff-sniff.

The dog has fiercely independent views.

An old man with his lungi tucked above the knees is dragging a kid into the house .The three year old is defiantly bawling and dragging grandpa away.

The kid does not see eye to eye with his grandpa on all issues.
