"I suspect the truth is that we are waiting, all of us, against insurmountable odds for something extraordinary to happen to us."

- Khaled Hosseini
And The Mountains Echoed.

The last lingering
breath of the night
ruffles through
my cascading hair,
carrying the scent of
waters and cold sand.

You nudge me,
on the shoulder
and break my trance

To bid goodbye
to moon glade
as the dawn
gradually devours.

Let me be a child today.

I need a bucket
full of innocence
to walk ahead,
having no doubts..

where I'm heading to,
and where should I stop.

Allow me, to be a child today.

Deprive me of the wisdom
of worldly manners
and quickly,
like a snap
break this reality into shards.

Yes, I'm a child today.
Tell the world,
I'll get a tomorrow
to grow up
and to talk mature,

the way it wants.

Or if tomorrow doesn't
show up
this happy child,
would be glad
to die

Be Breathless Till You Find Me

you mistook me, Sir.
I do not reside in the echoes
or debris of the past.
I do not flicker with the city lights,
nor do I rest amidst the seven sins.
I am the unquenchable thirst,
prodding you to begin
     the journey
which shall end within.

settled gracefully
on the bed of marigold
a wasp rubs its legs

Traditional 5-7-5 pattern.
