Blue Frame

Agile hands worked hard to toil

The family owned land.

Sheets of blue tarpaulin shaded

Young one cuddled up on tattered sheet.

Beads of sweat vanished into the parched land. But,

Water not enough to bed the seeds.

A familiar blue frame with broken glass dangled;

Bamboo held it strong. The photo meant faith.
