Rainbow of Dreams...



Dreams, soft, brittle
Like clouds, take amazing shapes
Only I can see

Only I can see
Pot of gold at the end of rainbow
Begin the chase

Begin the chase
Amid scolds, scorns, doubts
Undeterred, I carry on

Undeterred I carry on
Reach the end, touch the golden urn
It blazes, dissolves

It blazes, dissolves
Stunned, I stand amidst falling stars
A vision mourned

A vision mourned
Last of rainbow fading away
Dreams soft, brittle

    I beleive in my heart that to make our dreams come true WE HAVE TO DREAM :) yes they will break they will be shattered but still we have to dream to make them come true

    1. I agree, Bikram, whatever happens we can't stop dreaming. Infact wilted dreams become manure for new dreams. Hence life goes on...

    1. Thanks Aparna. I am both flattered and deeply touched by your appreciation. I am glad you found my rather amateurish attempt at poetry worth reading and worth these kind words.

      Thanks you so much! I will look forward to poet in you!!
