What will I write?
How many I can recollect
Life wouldn’t be as it is
Without all those childhood dreams
Many beliefs…many ideas
Where there is no trace of “No”
Everything appears so simple
When life was always on go!
Wishing good luck…rolling both hands
Looking at the cranes flying in the sky
Expecting good marks in tough subject
Keeping the leaves of “Saraswathi Plant” in books
Trusting that it will turn to golden tooth
Hiding the Tooth in soil, at some secret place
Thinking that it will bring good-luck
Keeping the Peacock feathers in geometry box
Oh …how believable were those beliefs
Oh..... how beautiful were those days
Where... heart was without any thought
And…..Mind was full of heart!
(For Poetry Jam: Magic of Childhood)
*One type of croton plant…which is locally called Saraswathi plant…
Saraswathi is The Goddess of Studies according to Hindu Mythology
