A Realization

Where do fly my prying eyes
Like a pair of rustic birds ?!

Where the breeze and lily leaves
Playing game of hide and seek,
Where the glossy twinkle stars
Wearing anklets and bangles,
Where the pretty fairy queens
Weaving airy golden dreams ?

It is going dark and night
It is growing risk and threat,
Still in sturdy brisk and brill
Where do fly my fragile thoughts ?

Where the world of witch and ghost
Aiding art of foul and fault,
Where the realm of lust and greed
Moulding crown of shame and shock
Where the vaulting ambitions
Leading life to tragic-ends ?

Fatigued like an acrobat
Footed on a rope of fate
Realized at a later stage
What I pursued : phantom life !!

(With the mermaids and falcons
Winging hopes in sea and sky,
With the unseen nymphs and sylphs
Colouring dreams in blank and bleak).

What I earned is nothing yet,
But a loss of ‘touch of land’
What I lost is nothing but
Walk and pulse of ‘human life’ !!

Yes we delve into the fantasy to obscure reality at times, both are good adventures and keeps
us balanced. I loved your adventure.


wow I do not deserve such a reply but thank you. I am not a poet as such just a dabbler of words and thinker on my own level. I read and learn and have learnt much from your poem.
Have a lovely day.

When I saw some kids, playing in the street, With a wish to join them, in that summer heat, Soon, a ray of realization came, That my innocence was no more the same. When I wanted to join, the youth
