I Dream

I Dream short poem

Sleep peacefully in the lap of mother nature,

Breathe fresh air and walk carefree,

Hear the sound of leaves beneath my feet,

Feel the raindrops on my face –

And smell the wet earth,

Fly with the birds, spread my wings wide,

Look at the world through eagle’s eyes…

Living amidst the concrete jungle,

Often I dream of these.

Waking up from the slumber,

Tiringly I get back to the daily routine.

The dream still fresh in my mind,

Feelings still strong in my heart.

The city breeze suddenly brings with it –

The first shower of rain.

The sweet smell of earth makes me nostalgic

And standing at the balcony –

I spread my arms and feel the raindrops on my face.

And, here, amidst the concrete jungle –

I see my dream taking shape, in spite of the open eyes.

Author of fiction books titled 'My Life story' and 'Is This Love & Autumn - The Last Leaf' and novel 'Resemblance - The Journey of a Doppelganger' I enjoy writing short stories on Relationships. I have attempted writing form poems like Haiku, Tanka, Cinquain, Acrostics etc but I most enjoy writing Prose poems where I get to express myself without the limitations of number of words or rhyming. Most of my writings depict human feelings and emotions, which I try to bring out onto the page and into the minds of the reader. I believe that essence of writing lies in not only entertaining the reader, but speaking to them through words. My style of writing makes it easier for the readers to visualize the story unfolding around them. I am of the opinion that being good at writing a story is not about the story being unpredictable, it is about the way you narrate the predictable story and still keep the reader interested.I blog at Straight From The Heart (http://www.artihonrao.net).

Pictures of nature swallowed by urbanization. Only the rains remains of what once was.

Life As A Dream

Life As A Dream short poem

I kissed the pillows of her cheeks. Covering myself in the blanket of her caress. While here nothing is heavy. Maintaining the balance of smiles in the bed of her arms She doesn’t mind my snore, relaxed in complete comfort.
