A Long Dream (dream Of Dreams)

A Long Dream (dream Of Dreams) short poem

Photo by h.koppdelaney

I had a long dream (dream of dreams)…

I went to a pond…
sat on the banks…
thinking about nothing…
as nothing came to my mind…
something moved out there…
some animal or fish, what?
it was very close to me…
I could not see any…
some time flew…
I thought of the past life…
I thought about my gone parents…
I thought of my brother no more…
I thought about stars and clouds…
yet again there was some movement
this time I went close to the pond…
only a big bubble seen…
it gave me the idea that life of ours…
is a big or small bubble…
I again thought of my family…
my wife, my children and gfs…
this time I saw a fish rising high…
but went below in the same speed…
this made me think our life also…
rises up and goes down fast like this…
now I thought of my old age…
how long will I live?…
how I will leave this world…
in a far distance somebody threw…
a stone upon the bank…
cluck sound came upon this…
this made me think our life…
is also making sounds like this

…I got tired
and slept ……

I can feel. “perchance to dream, perchance to sleep” We all feel in the same way when we got tired of life. The poet is in Melancholy but not scared. The Death the inevitable, is like a dream or the life we are living is also a dream. Regards
