A childhood wish


Often in my dreams
I see the shallow streams
And the women singing in the paddy fields
the monsoon rains that makes the fields flood
And the morning sunlight that blooms every bud
the frogs in the streams that croak melodiously
the meditative painted storks that move cautiously

With a streak of white in my hair
and visible wrinkles on my cheeks
A splash of colours on my canvas

and the weather all calm and serene
I live and paint this lively scene
I live and paint this lively scene


One time in my childhood my father was posted in a small cantonment called Hempur (Uttaranchal) located between Kashipur and Ramnagar. And everyday while going to school I use to relish the countryside and wished that sometime later in my life i comeback and live in this place again. I still hope that my childhood wish comes true.

That was such a beautiful poem
the first half reminded my of "the solitary reaper"

It seemed all so professional!!

I hope your dream comes true too!!
But once youre old enough and want things badly enough, you can get them..
Or that what I believe cos Im not old enough :(

You have captured the scene in your lines so beautifully.I have travelled by road to Kahsipur from Delhi many times and could relate with what you have said.

Can you pl tell me how to make a slide of awards as you have done
the instructions must be detailed stepwise as I am not compm savvy.They occupy less space.

Anyone who has seen the countryside or spent some time in life in those countryside knows the beauty of it and everyone has the same dream in their eyes.But unfortunately hardly those dreams come true :-( They are truly lucky who gets to make this beautiful dream comes true..I envy them :)
