Open 2022 Poems - Rekha Balachandran



By Rekha Balachandran


She asked, Why the clouds are white and grey?
Why the sky is blue?
A child innocence is so true,
I kept answering to all her curiosities,
Even though I was lost in my own thoughts,
Trying to connect the dots,
She asked, Can flowers talk? Can they feel?
Anything is possible, I said,
You just need to believe,
Life is full of mysteries and the stories we weave,
Some might come true as long as we live.
