The Family Opposite.

The family living near me.

There being a family on the opposite 

all very lively and loving on sight

The father being the commanding

while the mother doing all work with no backing

The eldest one always up to pranks

the second one being   very frank

The little one being so tiny

clings to the mother closely

The family have lived here for ages

not moving to any other place  in stages



They become active in the mid morning

walking over my hedges  to my back yard dancing

for the fruits that grow there  in abundance

they being juicy and lascivious

while the father, mother and the younger ones

go through the hedges making no  noise  even once

the eldest takes a different route  entire

that of hanging  on to to the telephone wire

swinging this way and that way as he moves ahead

as I look with fear  and awe   over the  tread

with all the family around me chatting

they being the kin of man in the offing

the monkey family in  all images (87)its best
