The Wishing Well

P.C :- Crispina Kemp

Standing in the middle of nowhere,

The wayfarer unable to bear,

The scorching heat,

Brightens up, eager to greet,

And recount the countless tales,

Including the nitty- gritty details,

He shares with me,

His best buddy in glee,

Happy to quench his thirst, I,

He, who has coronated me “The Wishing Well”, looks up to the sky,

And calls me his good luck charm,

Praying no harm,


Before he departs, out he calls,

A final wave,

Memory of this meeting, I save.

The flowers of the fiction plant rooted in my brain, the voice of the inexpressible feelings hidden in my heart and the eruption of the theories burning in my mind– I made a ball out of the three, threw it high into the sky and it landed right at my blog.
