Wanted – A Long Silken Thread
by Meenakshi Madhur
Bookmark and Share
  I want to take a long
a really really long
silken thread,
hold one of its ends
and tie it around my finger
and then tie the thread
to the trees, to the flowers and the leaves
and then tie it to every woman
whom I meet, walking on the street
to every man who passes by me,
to that little girl playing in the sand
and to every little girl who is not
but wishes, she played in the sand
to that little boy smiling at the girl playing in the sand
and to every little boy who dreams of
smiling and being with a girl playing in the sand
and then tie it to
that squirrel running around the tree
and the birds flying free
and then take the remainder of the thread
and take it further up to the sky
and tie it to the stars
and to the planets
and finally anchor it to the moon.
Once all of us are tied this way
every time even one of us tied to that thread
is in pain
every single one in the thread can feel it too
every time even one of us tied
to the long silken thread is happy
each and everyone in the thread can be happy too.
Now,
could somebody tell me where, on this earth,
could I buy such a long
such a really really long silken thread ?
The color I would like is Green!
