A Vision…. One Morning.

one morning i woke up,
to find nothing beside me.
the sunshine only just streaming,
through dark storm clouds,
that now i noticed was my new ceiling.

the 4 walls around me,
that had once held me prisoner,
trapped me in a corner
ever since i had known,
had vanished into thin air.

a small drizzle began to form,
sprinkling its waters onto the earth,
but i could not see a flower
opening its petals wide,
to accept those soothing waters.

not another soul i noticed,
as i walked the barren terrains,
no cheerful echoes of the past
or the present i could sense,
happiness seemed drained from this world.

i finally came across a river,
went to lie by its side,
but as i dipped my hands
into its cool waters for a sip,
the water suddenly turned into sand.

then i came to a garden,
saw some roses in its midst,
but as i reached with my hands
to pluck one out,
the petals suddenly became thorns.

as i walked the streets,
i could see homes appear from nowhere,
but tried as i did,in vain
to enter one’s hallowed halls,
the gates suddenly engulfed in flames.

where was i??
what was i doing here??
questions just popped up
as if its seeds
were being watered by the rain,
but no seeds of my mind
gave me any answers.

then i heard a bell ring,
somewhere in the distance,
the world in front of my eyes
began to vanish in a misty haze,
i thought the earth would eat me whole.

then i opened my eyes again,
saw my room as it was before,
then to my immense relief
or my never ending horror,
realized that i had first woken in my dreams.

was my dream a vivid vision
of the future to come
the way this world is going
maybe this is the future
that is imminent….

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
