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 © 2021 Phil Perkins
