Recently I reviewed a very small (18 pages) poetry book from Namitha Varma titled My Heart is Your Brothel. You can read the review here. She read my post on Indiblogger in the current IndiSpire topic and got inspired to writer her own 10 wishes that she has posted on her blog. I am re-posting it here so that it gets a space in IndiSpire.
@PebbleInWaters @indiblogger Just read it. & got inspired. Have borrowed your poem's title for my own 10 things. http://t.co/pyLfBCMfRD

Above is the tweet from her. Below is her post:
Glean a baby’s smile
steal a cat’s cuteness
gather the raindrops and make a necklace;
touch the whispers of the wind
feel the murmurs of the stream
drink a bowlful of moonlight
breathe in the sunlight and glow from within;
travel on the sound of the chugging train
sleep on the froth of a rising tidewalk a mile in my mother’s shoes.
If I can do these before I die,
why, death would then hardly count.
