A Letter to G N Saibaba in Prison from A S Vasantha Kumari

[This poem by A S Vasantha Kumari, obtained from her Facebook page, was written to G N Saibaba who remains a prisoner of the Indian State. She wrote this in the last week of December, 2014. – Ed.]

Don’t shut the windows of our dreams

Don’t shut the windows of your dreams
I am coming to see you like a whirlwind

The bars can’t stop this blossom wind
It passes through touching your forehead
Leaving my presence near and dear to you

The barbed wires can’t bruise our world of dreams
A fistful of feelings and memories fill your heart
Leaving my warm breadth caressing your eyes

The cages can’t stand this blossom wind
It breaks through soothing your memories
Leaving my life of dreams on our future

Don’t shut the windows of your dreams
I am coming to see you like a whirlwind

Wish you a new world of future
for a life free of chains of all kind
Wish you an entire world of dreams
Happy New Year!

Vasantha Kumari A S
