A Dream In A Pretty World - Poem by MOHAMMAD SKATI

The pretty world Around us and in us Is like a flashy dream, When we grasp it, It flies away like a passing cloud. It's the dream that lives in us And we don't live in it because It does not stay. It's a difficult dream that Flips from between your hands. It's a tricky dream that You live it for long time, then It goes suddenly in a moment. It's a moment that goes quickly In a huge trip in one's life. It's our pretty dream that we Live it for a short period of time. This is our pretty life Summed up in one pretty moment That vanishes suddenly. The whole life is like a pretty Dream that is a moment that Goes away quickly though we feel it Like a long trip in our life.

    It's more like a speech than like a poem. The content is great and I sense a poet in you, just put the word like how a true poet does and how a true poem should be. I hope you read my other poems and rate mine too.

    Regards,
    Vaibhav Simha.

    Sort of philosophical drop. The life is just a bubble that bursts at any time without giving any indication. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful poem. Congrats. (Report)Reply

    Like a dream that is short lived, that seemed so real when sleeping, vanishes after we wake up, our life, the world around us and within us too changes. and the things that were so real for our life in the past stay with us like a dream in our consciousness.A nice philosophical write, thanks for sharing.Congratulations for being the Poet of the Day.

    Wow! This is wonderful! Congratulations! Your beautiful dream poem has come on screen as the poem of the day. It's a tricky dream that you live it for long time and we hop for long to read.

    Great read, feels like a pair of hands holding up the soul:
    The whole life is like a pretty
    Dream that is a moment that
    Goes away quickly though we feel it
    Like a long trip in our life.
    Wonderful choice as the poem of the day,
    Congratulations!

    Lovely philosophical presentation of the journey of our life which looks pretty long but which could be as transitory as a dream which does not last long. Thanks for sharing. I quote:
    It's a moment that goes quickly In a huge trip in one's life.
    The whole life is like a pretty Dream that is a moment that Goes away quickly
    though we feel it Like a long trip in our life.

    Dream and waking have been contrasted and studied in ancient scriptures. Your poem echoes those ancient forays. Good read. Congrats for poem of the day. Something baffles - why are certain words capitalized and why is the poem written in a continuous stretch without line-breaks? Any particular reason? (Report)Reply
