A Wish

If I blow a dandelion,

Would my wish

Come true?

Would the wind

Carry it to the place

Where I want it to?


A part of me,

A large part of me,

Resides in that

Tiny pappus,

I dislike this distance

That has separated us.


You live in a place

That’s completely

Alien to me,

And I live in a place

Where you used

To be.


I’m tiny to the universe,

And tinier is the pappus

That’s carrying

My verse,

But when it nears

Your part of the world,

I hope it entirely



For the love

That my heart  

Carries for you

Has never grown small,

I’m a Saturn in this

Forever kind of a thing,

You’ll always be

My ring.

A beautiful poem, Manish. Perfectly paced.
