Crippled Dreams


I was rear, and by the window
She was front, and by the aisle
I saw her reflection

    The poem itself reveals everything, hence the detailed verse is not necessary.
    I studied in Manipal, Udipi and Mangalore during 1961 -68 where the girls were very beautiful, but since that area was endemic for filariasis, a very few may be suffering from elephantiasis leg. (Report) Reply

    This is an excellently woven poem with good pacing and imagery. I particularly like the use of lightening as a metaphor as the sudden and randomness of it fits well with the overall story. (Report) Reply

    though i was not thrilled by this poem, i did enjoy what you were expressing. i did not understand it completely until i read your explanation. i DO NOT agree with joe hughes' comments below. i certainly enjoy a poem which i understand without added explanation, but poemhunter does provide a separate place to write the poem's story and i am glad of it. i always write something in the story box. my wife says i just like to talk/type. BUT sometimes a little mystery can be a good thing in a poem.
    i DO believe joe h. wrote punish instead of publish in his comment. perhaps he should not submit a comment until he proofreads, reproofreads, and reproofreads! thnks for sharing.
    p.s. i DO partly agree with joe, in that i have found that poems i have written and ignored for a while can easily get better' in my opinion when i edit them, adding or subtracting here and there. (Report) Reply

    Vijay, I am glad that you described your poem, because some people can see what your words are decsribing or trying to say. I really loved your poem. (Report) Reply

    it is always nice to read vijay sai for the vivid lively pictures and the clever dealings
    it is not the girl who is crippled but the notion of the guy.the poet is telling us it is always a failure to fly in dreams forgetting the real life.thanks vijay (Report) Reply

    It is sad that we see things as you say in desire and dreams, when the reality is far different. We cannot make reality and dream one. The moment lost and we are the jetsam of the experience.

    Well written and it flow is very good.
    You have a way with words and using them visually.
    thanks for sharing

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
