The world and I

Power of Imagination

Can I sit here and look at that beautiful photograph, and imagine myself there, on that hill, climbing?
Can I imagnie the solid lava beneath my feet?
That sunrise on my right
The cool wind
The clear reflection on the water
Showing me up like a black silouhette

Can I take a vacation sitting right here looking at a photograph.

Is it possible for me to walk on that bridge
and look down on the Opera House in Sydney
from that photograph on that calendar
Be a part of the twinkling lights and impersonal traffic.

To imagine the tarmac beneath my feet
and the cool railing under my palms
while I hold the computer mouse.

how far can my mind fly
can i simulate the sights and smells
voluntarily.

Oh to take a vacation sitting right here
On my desk.
Climb the Summit

Achievement Poem

I dont usually write poems, the ones that end up something like them are usually unrhyming.

However, there was a request today. A freind wanted a poem for his little sister..all of 10 yrs, and somehow, the following could be written by me.
Am rather proud of myself :) It may be crude and amateurish, but it serves the purpose for a little girl from her big brother I guess.
My first ever attemp..and that too for someone else's sister!

Here it is for my documentation. Hope shes happy with it
------------------------
This Person I know

There’s this little person I know
Who plays the violin better than any piano
Like an Angel is her face
That brightens every moment of my days

Persistent is she to get her own way
Makes me follow her every bidding

But she is sweet
Sweeter than anybody
Strawberries and cream
Pastries and yes, even honey

A little person I may call her
But a big place in my heart do I keep
‘Brother Number One’ she may call me
But no sister like her shall ever be!
