my womb
warmed by your presence
once more
I long to feel
a spark of starlight

  waters may warm,
storms intensify,
sea levels rise
       yet still the voices
       of children at play

    little Gullivers
patter for shells and pebbles,
peer into ants' nests …
grow up in a world
of bigger and better things

a family of cyclists
make their way to school
in a spring breeze
the smallest child hangs on
to his father’s back

  the wind
holds the skylark’s song
how calmly
my child listens through
her hearing aid

space Ramesh Anand - India

    locking on a cloud
through the crosshairs
of his toy gun
my son tells me
where the wind goes
