I Crave...

image courtesy : google














I crave to be a rain bow
    And caress the passing cloud
Bathe in the sun - gently glow
    Painted in colors loud

I crave to be a drop of dew
    And caress the grassy lawn
Pure and clear- fresh and new
    Reborn every morn at dawn

I crave to be a stringless kite
    And caress the easy wind
Soar far and fly – day and night
    Leaving all my load behind

I crave to be a paper boat
    And caress the flowing stream
Sail along –gloat afloat
    And reach the island I dream

I crave to be a gentle breeze
    And caress the bamboo thicket
Thro’ beetle holes- pass with ease
    Flute music is nirvana’s ticket

I crave to be a bumble bee
    And caress every garden flower
Sip the nectar – heart in glee
    Honey filled life forever

I crave to be a bubble of soap
    And caress the rays of light
Glide along- winds of hope
    Till the earth is out of sight

I crave to be an ocean wave
    And caress the golden beach
Tide above the rocks and lave
    A carefree life I beseech

  15. Did you draw the picture? It has got a 3D effect...depth in it. The verses are very apt. If you don't know to appreciate small small things, you can never be happy.
