*a Farmer's Fantasy..... Poem by Vaibhav Pandey

*a Farmer's Fantasy.....

Rating: 3.9

With just a handful of barren land,
And tottering dreams based on the sand.
Yet the desire continued to bloom,
To produce the green out of the doom.

No frill now, can satiate his needs.
A tinge of grass is for all he pleads.
Extracting life out of nature's legacy
So small is that farmer's fantasy......

A farmer's life is one of toil but ultimately very rewarding. Great little poem. Best wishes, Andrew

Dear Vaibhav, Welcome to our farmers' world with this very beautiful and touching poem. I started taking up social issues with farmers only from my earlier poems HONORABLES and THAT RAINY DAY. The more and more we get deep into subject, we see more pain and so many tears rolling; the real place where a poet has to dwell.Very well done. Excellent poem

This is a beautiful feeling for the farmer. True the farmer, toils so hard, does not have high expectations, but he is the person who provides the most important product, food for our survival. But sadly he doesn't get his due. He needs to be supported and adviced for he has that will to work very hard and a heart of gold. Nice write 10+++
