Treasure Island

A Lovely Dream!

I dreamt of a small home
Built by warmth of love.
Tiny windows
To welcome cute birds and
Few tiny squirrels,
Where only the freshness of fragrance
Often breathe in.

A tiny desire of humbled life.
Every day only a single rose bloom in my tiny garden of love.
Where my beloved will tuck a rose in my hair.

Delicious meal with just one sweet pudding.
Where saving will be few, quiet enough to fulfill ones dreams too.

May be its just a lovely dream
Many may be blessed with such lovely dreams
But they may be dreaming of someone else's dream
As I am dreaming someone else's!

That's why wishes never remain fulfilled
They remained mere a dream in our lives!

A lovely dream that remained mere a dream!

    With dreams only the life can move ahead, the dreams are the essential primers of life. The more you dream the more you 'll be encouraged. Hence all those dreams are very welcome Geeths, very nicely detailed. (Report) Reply

    Once Dr.APJ abdul kalam told that, Give wings to your dreams and fly high. I remembered the line, But I don't know about real life. I liked to read the poem much, But feel some what change in my thought. (Report) Reply

    Whether realized or not, to have such lovely dreams will definitely brighten up our lives! I enjoyed reading the spontaneous unfolding of your tiny dream where there is a single rose in your garden of love and where birds and squirrels are admitted through the tiny windows! (Report) Reply

    Dreams enrich our souls to aspire to what we really want out of this life, but even though they don't come true it's good to have had them!
    A dream of a humble home so beautifully written with panache! (Report) Reply

    We nourish a dream of great things.But, when it does not come true, we become upset.This is a lesson for us.To dream of a happy home is a sweet desire indeed.Because, the house may be big but to make it a home is not easy.Geetha, a superb poem you shared with us.Thanks. (Report) Reply

    A home wherein there is love has always been a woman's favorite dream, first he dreams it for himself then for her daughters and grand daughters. A lovely poem. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
