“Rainbows” – Nayana Nair

rainbow-trees-ann-marie-bone

We will build a palace
from the bygone days,
from fading rainbows of love,
from our name sweetened
with mother’s love,
from our days without schedules,
and the sleep that never left our eye.
Let’s find beautiful smiles
to fill our hearts.
Let’s build a city,
a universe.
A world with
with melting galciers of poems
and trees ladden with childhood dreams.
Let’s build places to hide
from what our lives have become.

  1. A place where we can be drunk on reminiscence without fear of the rude awakening to a world going sour, losing its nectar, lustre and glitter where the shades of refuge are few and far between!

    This is the most beautiful poem I have read lately!
