I Wish

“I want to know your hearts desire.”

I feel a little like the beauty queen contestant who wants peace in the world. Well, what’s wrong with that?

I wish for every child of earth enough to eat, water to drink, someone to love, and love you back, a roof over your head at night, a yard to tend and garden, too, labor enough to make you tired, a soft pillow and dreams so sweet, laundry flapping on the line, rocking chairs on the porch, books to read stacked high, no one rich and no one poor, and never a one in need that someone, somewhere was willing to be a friend in deed.

In a perfect world
there would never be tears
that someone could not dry.

  3. A perfect world is where everyone is taken care of and are satisfied. Greed and power meddle with the equation. That’ll lead to conflicts that history had shown. It’s a pity!

  5. I couldn’t agree more–you have nailed the essence of a happy life on this earth, and what we should most want and wish, not just for ourselves, but for us all.

  6. Love this, especially the concluding haiku. I love the fact that the wish is realistic: it doesn’t ask for what many have suggested is “perfection”, but for a great world where everyone would be perfect for his or her burden… so much so that even the burden would bring the perfect happiness.

  7. I think those tears you just can dry, just sums up the simplicity… There are still so many things that need to be in place to make it real…

  9. I really, really loved these gentle words – from laundry on the line to the friend in deed – the whole thing is amazing.

    World peace…the socialists call it brotherhood, the Christians called it fellowship, the zealots call it unattainable. I call it necessary, essential, building block, necessity; smile.

  13. Hi Debi–Agree with Hedge–you really have all the elements here–including the labor, which is also so important–sense of purpose. Agh. Really succinct and on the mark. Thanks k.
