*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

great poem... of perseverance, hardwork and the desire to develop God's gift of nature... ...that is the same as the one who tilled the barren land and now is known to be one of the favorite field trip destinations (the GAP Farm or the Good Activities of the People) in Mindanao 'The Land of Promise' through his hardwork and dedication...it is made possible...FARMER'S FANTASY now a Reality... thanks for sharing this...10+++

Just like a Writer or Poet, who is attempting to embark on their goal of scribing an '''Accomplished Work'''...It is the unparalleled desire, as well as the steadfast self-motivation & confidence that(imo) are clearly the most invaluable tools, in accomplishing & overachieving at any high-end challenge, so long as there is a somewhat nominal degree of genuine talent working along with it.Furthermore...i found through my own experiences in business management...that some of the best success stories came about, when the person(s) were challenged by obstacles such as: timeline, a company or a superiors assumptive expectations based on passed overachiement, a competitively driven individuals quest to 'Raise the Bar'', or via the scientific adrenaline theory. In fact, Vaibhav, i saw this (adrenaline theory) scenario live & in full efflorescence on 09-11, in New York...and it was stunning! ...Excellent Work, as always, my friend! FjR '09

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+++
