My mom and I have written a poem together! You guys have read my poems and you know what my style of writing is. This time, I decided to share with you a poem which my mother and I have written together! I am so excited to know what you guys think of our collective effort!
The stanzas in blue are my mom’s and the ones in black are mine. We’ve written the stanzas alternatingly, the first being mine, next being hers and so on (additional information if the colour isn’t showing up.).
The Golden Canvas
By Prerna and Meher Gandhi
I have been wandering in this forest alone,
Have traversed every puddle, every stone.
All the lights and crowds I’ve seen,
The desert is where I’ve never been.
It seems the path is taken less,
Or is it for the one to assess?
The lonesome stream, the hollow pit,
To make it meaningful, bit by bit.
I think of the golden shore of settled sand,
The holy waves of brown and gold.
The silent airy blow takes me to this land,
To live the stories never been told.
The fierce sun rays set ablaze,
The misty sand to sparkle away.
The mirage gives it to my gaze,
And I seek life out of astray.
I wish to befriend all the hovering vultures,
To never let go of the priceless junctures.
Every season that I would greet,
Would have me gazing at the sand’s and sun’s meet.
Yes, I yearn to traverse the desert land,
The forlorn canvas of the Mighty hand.
Sure it calls for all the celebration.
A plight to unravel the splendid jubilation.
