Dreaming Times


Not so profound, not so deep
Wounds in the bodies dig a sleep

Writhing like a leech about to suck
After a few winks, sleep forms into a crystal arc

Eyes hardened like a brittle glass stood on the wall
Every wink, every spell rotates under the squall

A glimpse appears, not-so-far
At the horizon of the bed, dream wafts into the sleeper.

Bodies mingle with silence after that
Dream gazes at like a fearful cat

Those serene moments licks up all
Dreams and only dreams makes us fall

A colourful rainbow, a pestering ostrich
Comes all at a stroke then yawns out with a feeble screech

Before the final shake, a faint touch
Began to soothe, eyes fumble at large

All the colours from the dreams elope
When the pillows like an abandoned wife pull and shove.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
