Poetry 2012 Longlist, Varsha Pandit

Dream Island

Far far away across the seas lies a beautiful island
No more tears – here lies my magic wand, my mind
Forget everything for I am on a flight towards the charmed island
I am in the space inhaling the sweet scent of the land
I take a deep breath – and lo! – I am on my breathtaking island

Beautiful birds fly across the sky
The air is sweet and fragrant
As I inhale , the whole world is encapsulated in my mind’s sky
Here I go! Go there again and again before my eyes are opened
Lie there on the sweet green grass in a serene world
Lie there and time is frozen
I open my eyes return to reality
Where the clock ticks incessantly
