CHILDHOOD

time, wait!
i want to go back!
listen, you should leave
reckoned the booming flora & withered leaves
leaped the cliffs of springs & autumns
while chasing you!
my feet freezed by the teeth of these fissures

those summers summon me up,
to pitch the pebbles in the creek
swim on the surface of,
those thirst-quenching rills
pluck the lilies & roses

to pursue-
the butterflies, lady-bugs, grass-hoppers
in the oases

that dawn, that tempts me
to slumber over the cradles of those -olive meadows
that dusk, hypnotizes me
to focus the chorus-
that those feathered creatures whistle
below the bittersweet shades of that
wild blue yonder,
the caricatures of clouds fabricated by the winds

those raindrops,
boost me up to crumple,
the colorful patterns of paper boats
& bid them adieu,
for their own-unknown moirai

those still & rusted swings,
want me to sprint on my own tracks
jump-off the walls of those grave parks
push my self high -on them

the sand of hourglass whispers in my ears,
to etch my nadir on those sea-shores
where tides wait to clash with tiny-toes

Easter to Halloween
Halloween to Christmas!
locks my sense,
to blaze the foggy-cigars
energize me to make my own snow-man

those nights,
want me to touch the tears of sobbing-stars
whip them! from the windows of my bed-room
to calmly faint with the warmth,
of pillows & blankets
time has no time for time,
has spun a yarn of my child-hood.
