Little Minds, Big Dreams..

Sibling
Sitting skew
on a child woman hip,
she stands
nose pressed against
the glass,
as images
and
dreams unfold

Waves on beaches,
steps in the sand,
bobbing boats,
a small house
in the mountains,
a vegetable patch,
an evening walk
on a river bank,
birds chattering,
children playing,
walking to school,
skipping in the woods,
laughing their heads off,
mothers,
worshiping,
temple bells,
celebrations,
flowers,
roses,
tulips,
jasmines,
a mischievous moon,
admonished by a
seriously setting sun,
looking sideways
at picturesque pillars
in far away lands;

She adjusts
the little one
on her hip,
as she produces
a mashed
blackened banana
for him.

She must reach
the parents’
construction
workplace,
and speeds up
her steps.

Looking to get
her own work soon.
Unsure
about her own,
she will ensure
that the little fellow
astride her hip.
rubbing
his runny nose
on her shoulder
can visualize
and realize,
his own dreams
one day………….
