    In Brahmasutra it is written suchakacha hi sutre, aachakacha hi tat hita. What ever is hinted in dream is for your welfare..In addition to that dream, naturally occurring in sleep, one can plan a dream, poet says and hold
    on to achieve that.

    Fourth line is superfluous, only making up the rhyme. Not that deep, as it happens, Try john Keats instead. (Report) Reply

    Wow this poem really hit me. This is how I feel just now. I have been through some really hard times over the last few years and my dreams and even hope feels lost to me, suffocated and snubbed out by my life experiences. Life is a barren field That is where I am. It is only as I get older that I have begun to truly appreciate and comprehend the soul of poetry. (Report) Reply

    Dream is never small or big..Dream is worthy..A life without dream is like a house but not home an animal but not a human...Dream is the candle that directs us with its light even in darkness on our life (Report) Reply
