Arms of Love

Arms of love call me
A hundred thousand of them
She hugs me as the breezeImage result for india child waving images
Smiles at me as a flower
Touches me
As a dry leaf on my shoulder

In peak summer
Dense traffic
She waves to me
As a young boy
In the back of a truck

I wave back
I pause
I vow
To anchor my life
In the sweetness of love

Love smiles at me,
I return to her arms
With a smile.

  1. So sweet…the smiles of the kids…so innocent and pure…cursing “time”…that changes everything…longing to remain as a kid…in words…in thoughts…in deeds…

  2. I think that picture will remind everyone of their childhood …….bundled on the back seat waving and smiling at whoever crosses by ……..this makes me wonder the amount of damage adulthood does ……we all need reasons to smile now out which we choose which ones are worth a smile ……….thank you for making me meet my inner child today
