I Wish I Were

I wish I were a cloud

That glides through the sky

In a spic and span white

And plays peek a boo

With the sun and the moon

I wish I were the rain

That the petrichor carries

To quench the thirst of

The mud , the trees

And the lively creatures.

I wish I were a bird

That soars up high

And traverses miles

Across mountains and springs

By just a flap of the wings.

I wish I were a leaf,

That forms a majestic crown

On a barren tree trunk,

Bejeweled with colourful fruits

And the diamond dewdrop.

I wish I were a child

That is full of life

And devoid of sorrow

Whose innocence radiates

A smile on the beholder.


What do you think?
