Deep Dreams

Our fondest dreams are those we find
submerged the deepest in our mind.

They are the oldest dreams of all
around which now has grown a wall.

My own wall has grown year by year,
and time to time I shed a tear.

Life’s wall so high - deep dreams so low -
I finally have to let them go.


For Russell Sivey's Dreams Poetry Contest

    An enchanting poem. I wish you success in the contest. As long as there is life there are dreams; there are desires, the wall you are talking about not withstanding. The dreams not based on reality have an in built wall in them and do not see the light of the day. Thanks for admiring my Tanka Foundation. For real growth strong foundation is needed. Without this any growth is not sustainable. This is what the shoot is telling to the clouds. Have a nice week end. -Mohammad

    Great! Andrea... "the walls of reality esteemed; the walls of dreams(phantasmagoria) humbled by the claws of reality... just embrace reality... Captured the same idea in my poem PARADOX... hope u love it... Love.. Angel

    Lovely, although a sad ending but true for many as well. It's hard when dreams die but that is just another part of life I guess. Very nicely written. -- Sean

    Though it's sad, but reality of time depicts truly. Every thing and every one are bound by time, so it's better let to go, if uncontrolled. Your acute sight has done it wonderfully. Loved always, bl

    So sad at times to let go of dreams..but i guess that's why they're called dreams... On the otherhand in dreams everything is just the way we want it to be... and guess that's quite a feeling indeed... Happy thanksgiving sweet lady,God bless you always.
