Pressed Flowers

Pressed flowers,
Were blooming flowers,
Once upon a time,

Pressed flower's beauty,
Always stayed,
In my mind.

The petals fleshed out,
Only yesterday,
Turned into flatness today.

Flowered in dried-out form,
Spoke of their stories today.
They had so much to say.

Stories of bloom time flowers,
Stories of rapid rain showers.
Stories of sharing a garden,
And stories of wild abandon.

These pressed flowers knew everything
Vera Sidhwa



Sweet Pea

You run around the floor.
You knock on the nursery door.
Your rattle being dragged from a dirty mouth.
Your baby garments dragged on the floor.

You're the baby I asked to be born.
You hold your milk bottle at a slant.
Your drool is the most innocent,
You do.

Baby, sweet pea,
You are near and dear to me.
You are a love's epitomy.
But baby from my arms,
Don't flee.
Vera Sidhwa



The Water Fountain

I drank from my glass filled with water,
I drank from the office water cooler.
So many people drank from water fountains.

Then I thought my thirst,
I could slake,
If I also drank water from cool lakes.

Then I drank so much cold water.
I drank from cold waterfalls.

But much to my surprise,
I thirsted for all the world’s waters,
That always existed.

I couldn’t fathom my inner self,
About slaking my thirst insatiable.
I couldn’t come to grips about,
These deep waters of my life.
Vera Sidhwa



Walking In The Light Of Night

I walk in the light of the night,
Convinced I saw everything.
Reaching the nighttime forest,
It suddenly dawned on me,

That the place of most darkness,
Was what the world gave to me.
The darkness of the forest terrified me.
This forest no longer looked beautiful.

Now emerged a light in this night,
From this forest is what I thought,
But the light shown too close to me,
That even when I stepped back to find,
Wouldn't show itself to me,
But it was there, there all along.

Now I sat on the forest floor,
With crossed legs and eyes closed,
This light in the forest was me.
Now the darkness of this forest didn't matter.
Vera Sidhwa
