Arvinder Kaur: Text

stars twinkle 
in my piece of the sky
how the fireflies 
light up
my quarantine

I would blow 
a field of dandelions 
only if
wishes could travel 
and bring mama back

he misses 
his dead mother 
I miss mine
but deep into the night 
the rain sings us a lullaby

as if it knows 
of mother’s passing 
each day
a mourning dove returns 
to coo at my window

I bring back
a sequin gown
in midnight blue
a glimmer of the dreams
she never shared
