Shall we pretend? ...

Let’s pretend 
that someday I will run to pick up those flowers
that nestled in the dust
even before the monsoon rain would touch them.
Let’s pretend
that I know magic
that I can fly
and I can talk to a frog
and the chair is a ship.
Let’s pretend
hidden beneath the memories
and lost between the leaves
I would be able to
sleep peacefully;
And let’s pretend
a river will stream through my room
and my room will become a garden!

Let's pretend it's part of the process for your holy Freedom.

the lump of a grief
that was stuck in your throat for long
will help you compose a poem;"


"Slowly, eventually
The azure sky will promise an equal light,
no beginning, no end, but
an equal music, and
only then you will reach a spotless holy

So let's believe. :)

The Gnome's poem said it all better than I ever could. Let us believe, Moon. You and me both!

Oh, how you enchanted me with this poem Moon! Yes, let's pretend:)
I love the simplicity of your writing on this piece.
I love the innocence you portray throughout.
Yet, the verse... 'let's pretend /hidden beneath the memories/ and lost between the leaves/ someday/ I would be able to sleep peacefully'.. seemed in itself hidden between the lines of this charming poem. A fabulous piece of work Moon :)

I like the world you want us to believe in - a land of magic and unsophisticated beauty.

I think that if we pretend enough the make-believe will become the truth. the garden in your room is there..

i love that space through which a river swims and reminds us of the flow, to carry on...a dream poem..

A good prescription for joy, and, paradoxically, a fine vehicle for satire! One of my joys lately is to fantasize alone, when I used to enjoy so much the "we" of "Let's." Thank you for this poem.
