Poem: Daydreaming

We’ve all daydreamed at one time or another, drifting into a pleasant vision or wishful scenario of ones imagination. This poem speaks to such moments and compliments a lovely woman from India – Mukti Masih. She’s an accomplished writer and business Head of Content, a friend who is frequently the source of my inspiration, and the woman of my dreams…

She entered a dream that was dreamed long ago
  A vision of beauty dancing in my mind
An Indian woman whose name is Mukti
  Both poet and artist, and one of a kind

I pinched myself twice
  Combed the sky for a star
My wish, happiness
  With her light from afar

On paper in pen
  I opened up my heart
To longhand these words
  Emotions, to impart

In seventeen years
  I awoke from this dream
With her, by my side
  Sipping spiced chai with cream

She poured me a cup
  As I looked in her eyes
Good things can come true
  In a wink, by surprise
