Childhood Calling

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Getting caught in troubles,
Hop scotching. Skipping. Jumping. Falling.
I would jump and skate,
Being a dare devil,
Always getting bruises and scars,
But that didn’t stop me from going bizarre.

***

I wish today,
I could behave like I did as a kid.
To be out in the sea,
Soaking up the sun and playing in the sand.
Sifting sand through laughter and,
Digging holes with hands.

***

Jumping on a wave,
Waiting for them to crash,
Avoiding the undertow…
Rather…today I just enjoy,
The ocean breeze and the ocean view.
Counting the waves.

***

Revisiting my childhood,
Playing and jumping around.
Unburdened, without any aim.
I wish I could go back and find it:
That moment.
And get back there.

***

Running  silly to catch butterflies.
Tying the dragon flies together by their tails; then setting them free.
Plucking flowers from a tree,
Gathering wild berries,
Disappearing into bushes green.
Running on the playground of life,
Today, I look back with yearning eyes.

***
 
Jumping on the pavement,
Kicking my shoes off and laying down on grass.
Basking in the presence of the world,
Jumping over life’s petty troubles.
I found that peace and left my stress.
What else could I ask for in life?
