A Poem a Day 2015 (37): The wish #2minutesgo

Oops, I haven't posted a poem since February 26th! It doesn't seem that long ago, so time has flown. Since then I've taken a trip up to visit my family and celebrated my birthday, which seems to have extended over the week. It's times like these when you're reminded how truly amazing your friends and family are. Life's treasures. Here's a 2-minute poem in which I imagined a young girl going through experiences not so simple or pleasurable. We've all been there. It was written for JD Mader's 2minutesgo Friday challenge on his blog - check it out :) - http://www.jdmader.com/2015/03/2-minutes-go_13.html 

The wish

She made a wish
in the time of sorrow
for every tomorrow
to end

not with a sigh
or a whimper
or an itch
but a scream
mightier than thunder

as overwhelming
as the greatest word
ever said
as mind-blowing
as the purest calm

this open hand
reaches outwards
upturning as a leaf
curving into her
with a caress
 soundless and strong

qualities she envied
without guilt
lost as she was
in this winter
of her budding life
