Day - Night Dreams


It is often difficult not knowing

Where the wind will blow?

Where the tides will turn?

When the storm will cease?

Tragedy hit us hard as nails

Leaving a tail—spin wind, whistling within our midst

A once perfect euphoria fades all together

Like the ripples of the mirror-glass stream

Heart-ache and pain

Then follows despair along

with the tip, tap drops of rain

Life is a mirage, capricious cycle of day-night dreams

Shows a thousand faces to endure

One instant you are happy and next your heart bleeds

Then contentment may grace the soul once more

Up then down

Blessed then cursed

But to give comfort

The sun will rise again

In the east, I know

    nice one godfrey, it's all in the toss of a coin my friend, thats how fast fortunes change, you just don't know whats round the corner, but just to have faith that you'll weather the storm. (Report) Reply

    If winter comes, can spring be far behind? -Shelley's lines are recalled to the mind. Life is a cycle..day and night dreams. What a line this is! Your lines brief are the most suitable to quote in facebook and twitter. The tip, tap and dropp sounds of the rain are ringing in my ears. This is also a masterpiece. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
