Longing for childhood days
old memories unearthed
emanating life afresh
like tilled soil after summer rain
Dreaming again of carefree days
stealing unripened mangoes from neighbours’ trees
chasing broken kites and butterflies
collecting yellow flowers teased free by spring's breeze
Spreading cooling henna on sun chapped hands
stringing white flowers through soft black hair
basking in moonlit nights drenched with jasmine
heady, haunting queen of the night
Flaming amber sunrises pregnant with anticipation
for another day of light-hearted play
of floating boats in monsoon rains
of leaping off cliffs into warm blue seas
Yearning for simpler times once more
when a father's hands
could mend anything broken
and a mother's tender touch
kissed away the deepest hurt
Wishing for a time yet again
when life was happy
Craving a time again
when life was truly free
