National Paddy Day

With pure, unadulterated joy,

a Nepalese youth

rollicks in the mud of a rice paddy

 

His exuberance palpable

as mud smears his being

enters every orifice

stoppers pores

seeps under nails

 

For this is the stuff

in which rice grows

the staple for life

 

And the planting season

is about to begin
