Kyaw Thu Ra: A 60 word story

A monument that stood to house neighbourhood kids

Motorcycles and bicycles piled up

In line to play soccer

Curiosity.

He grabbed my notebook and began to draw

Our only form of communication.

Birds flying and fish swimming

Above and beyond the boats of Inle

Thanaka gleamed on his cheeks

He held up his fingers to show his age

Ten.
