A Dream Of Reality - Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

I had a dream short
yester night;
I saw in that
some thing of mine;
my life,
full of craze;
those sights,
them I gaze
were they of mine?

A cross junction
of love and hate;
from there a lane
leads to resting place;
the pavement there,
a heap of mud near
a plant over there,
that, my desire,
I had planted
along with you joint...


Underneath,
it was dry; there
I saw your mind
unwilling to water;
soil unsaturated
thirst not satiated,
expectations
high of mine
seen crumbled
out fallen
the desire plant
shedding dry leaves;
tear drops
water less!

My short dream thus...

    reality and dreams connect in a poetic views... i like it.... seems very special to accept.... yet very revealing that life is not what we expect to happen...perhaps
    in other space of reality and thats a dream, all things are possible to
    happen.... i like your thought of philosophy in life... thank you... more power
