Prakash Mehra

Often, In My Dreams.

When the beats are low and visions are light,
Often, in my dreams, I see an unseen sight.
Through nervous passage to uneasy chore,
My anxious sensation does open the door.
It’s vast and beautiful; the pure and divine,
I blink my eyes, and wonder, if it’s mine.
If crawl or run; me, the clueless, a new born,
Perhaps, too insane to anticipate due morn.
The wind, the guide, and few lessons to fly,
Though fledge less flight; I measure the sky.
Chasing your foot marks, scattered over sea;
You; the noble, the glorified or that’s only me!
Sudden twist and turn; it’s fortune-wheel,
A loud, reechoing call back; rising in peal.
Let me be stay here; I beg, I cry and request,
But destiny arrives, along with never easy test.
Either endless peace or desires extreme,
An inauspicious pick, the end of my dream.

    The magnificent obsession of a vivid and alluring dream that lurks in the sub-conscious given birth through this beautiful poem. Very good writing. { Comments are reciprocal}

    If you look at the mind like I do after a blast damages your brain, you have to put yourself back together, senses can be cultivated cultured, and not controlled other than by monitoring our perceptions, balancing our gut and..... oh yes the feelings

    1-2-3-4-5-6-7 and many many more
    ..... you want to take the next line and then I'll take the next

    It is not about who it is about why? and in the language arts the first and last syllable is always the same

    Truly a dream nicely expressed by you covering the whole world and possibilities without end. Keep on dreaming. They may turn into the real thing. A lot of poets draw material from their dreams.

    My mind too does dream a lot..I often marvel at its endurance...even when I am down with the most dreadful disease it keeps on dreaming!

    loved the way you presented it all...dream, destiny, fate, reality.... well done.
