hot peanuts and juicy oranges

Hot peanuts picked up and packed
From the pan filled with sand
On burning stove of vendor man
Jars filled with candies and toffees
Lined all around it…..
“Peanutttts…..hot peanuttttts…!”
His loud call was magical
“Mommy please ten paisa only!”
Eager kids tugging her sari
How could she not oblige!
Sitting on lawn, basking in sun
Hands dusting away
Residues of sand
The jacket pops open
Red seeds on tiny palms
Black salt and hot peanuts
Taste of heaven on earth!
