The Dream Loom

Angels haul the lustrous moon from its sapphire womb;

And fairies spin sequined stars; the wondrous sky to groom.

The dreaming eye unhindered moves;

Beyond a fenced world on enlightened hooves.

At lightening speed the equilibrium shifts.

From hazy mists a new adventure lifts.

Flitting reflections of days gone past.

Fused, confused yarns; seem for ages last.

Then sweeping back the tendrils of dreamy night;

Emerges the morn in glory bright.

Like shifting shadows some stray in the light of day;

To spur a smile or frown before drowning in oblivion’s way.

    To be honest, my Kannada medium education and in my limited life span not devoting much time on reading books, I couldn’t grasp fully in the first try.

    I remember your AlWaha days, you were penning poems for school kids.

    Poems generally not very easy to understand with first reading. If you read carefully then one can enjoy the beauty of it. Good arrangements of ornamentalel words and deep meanings makes your poem worth reading again and again. Keep it up…
