Baraqat ~ Stories From Urdu

(Urdu; Blessings, a benediction)

Fat purple feathers, a head of plumage, her face obscured by a party of silver sequins on it. That's how she stood at the station waiting for her train.

Another at a lunch, had on a tail and dog ears trying to balance a drink while wearing boxing gloves.
I almost forgot that doll-faced fairy, so surly all she ever did was curse.

The best blessings I've run into all looked like costume party rejects.
My favourite ones looked nothing like they were supposed to.
