Make a wish

Poem #27 – Stamp collection – National/Global Poetry Writing Month 2017

Make a wish

A luscious wish
An audacious,
maybe expensive,
maybe selfish wish.

Wish to
travel to the garden island, Kaua’i
to hike the rain forest
and touch a rainforest rainbow.
Breathe the moist, green air
All is green
All is foliage
Feels like whence life sprung
Sea to forest.

Wish to
build an herb garden get-a-way
with an ornate gate and
tall pineapple sage
bending over thyme.
Take your time.
Breathe in the tinctured air
Wafts of tangy rosemary
next to buttery roses.
Grandma’s bench rests here
for a morning moment
A warm cup of fresh picked chamomile tea.

Wish to
take a week,
a whole luxurious week off
to write
to lounge
to lengthen out Yoga asanas
and breathe deep that pranayama,
source of life,
as if you have all day
because you do have all day.

Make a wish
any wish.
Set the intention
and the how will follow.
