A Dreamy Visitor - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan

A dream came floating and said evocatively to me
I am always besides you to prod you forward and inspire,
Then it said with a visible smile that I could see
But to fulfill it you will have to work hard and perspire.
On seeing me nonplussed, it hastened to add
You must stay focused, always think of me and aspire,
Then he said with a voice both bitter and sad
In case you stop trying I shall into the thin air retire.
As the dream bid me goodbye, he while leaving said
Don’t imagine me as immaterial and throw me out of your head.

    Dreams are to be cherished for ever! A life without dreams will be bland and barren! But without persevering and perspiring to realize them, they will remain mere phantasmagoria! An inspiring write... small and beautiful! ! (Report) Reply

    Beautiful flow of words....
    Don’t imagine me as immaterial and throw me out of your head
    Very true said, one has to dream and find out the different ways to make it true....That is all life about! (Report) Reply
