Once I was foolish Poem by indira babbellapati

Once I was foolish—
I thought I could nurture
A garden of flowers
In a desert

Once I was foolish—
I thought I could clad
A desiccated tree
In its lost foliage

Once I was foolish—
I thought I could restore
A bird missing
Back to its nest

Once I was foolish—
I thought I could swim
The length and breath
Of the oceans

Once I was foolish—
I thought I could ease
An aching heart
And wipe the tears

Once I was foolish—
I thought my dreams
Will bloom into colorful petals
That I might sprinkle in you way

I want to be foolish
Again and again…
