Cool fountains here and there


The cooling fountain and the clear, blue sky
on a lovely Sunday morning
Cheering up the family bonding
taking a walk together at a park nearby.

Behold the ripples!
Circling the sparkling fountain
Coconuts, palms, shrubs, trees and flowers around
All so refreshing to the passersby.

This one at Suanthon Park's entrance
Small but in a perfect shape
Greeting the joggers and families
Even the lovers and friends.


A boy awaits
for the water to stop flowing
to run across
that he won't get wet.

'Tis a cool sight to behold
amidst the crowded city's hustles and bustles 
Even tourists at Siam Paragon are waiting
to capture an image when the waters fully rise.

Does the bare-footed lady make it or miss it?
As she gambles even if she gets wet
Running across at the wrong time
She doesn't mind as long as she's refreshed from heat.

Now, which one is your fountain?
(I took the first three photos at the 63 acre Suanthon Park between our condo and my university. I captured the last three at Siam Paragon on the the busy Sukhumvit Road in downtown Bangkok, where "farangs" (foreigners) usually flock.
