Turbulent Dream

Turbulent Dream short poem

Photo by AquaLungBX

Two young couples getting engaged
marks the planning of their dream life

Marriage between the couple
and their union in twilight
sets the beginning of their dream

Parenthood becomes the most cherished
episode of their dream

Stage by stage Growth of children
becomes the steps towards their
journey to heaven in their dream

Marriage of their children
becomes the last step
approaching the door of
heaven in their dream

Becoming grand parents and
playing with grand children
marks the opening of door
of the heaven in their dream

Falling ill and getting bed ridden
marks the cloudy and hazy scene
on entering the heaven in their dream

Children’s apathy and arguments to
escape taking responsibility
of looking after them becomes the
frightening scene in their penultimate
scene of their dream

Praying the almighty to enter
his abode while trying to distance
themselves from the clutches
of their children marks the
climax of their dream

Getting up frightened and tormented
the just married couple wake up from
the bed totally shocked and realising
that it was a nasty dream

The young married couple walk out
of the bed room pledging themselves
not to dream of their future any more
