Treasure Island

Dreams


Unsubstantial world
Precursors of reality
Either true or false!

Seen with open eyes
Building castles in the air
Ending in surprise!

Weaving different web
Transporting the wavered mind
From the fret of life!

    All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

    adorable ;) (Report) Reply

    I fully agree with your poetic description of dreams. All the three stanzas bring out the imagery profound enough to provide us a luxury to indulge in dreams. Thanks for sharing, Shahzia. (Report) Reply

    Like everything else, dreams have a significant purpose, though we fall short of knowing. Really enjoyed this Shahzia.

    I especially love the third stanza, which quotes...

    The dreams that come to us in sleep are mostly from a flimsy world of reality and therefore unsubstantial! The dreams seen with open eyes are often castles built in air and enable us to forget the frets of life! Except the nightmares, dreams are lovely and they render life colourful.... So let us dream on! Enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply

    dreams are one of state. we can not ignore dreams. true or false n i suppose not even a single person is there who has never dreamt. i can not say it is a purely imagination. beautiful attempt (Report) Reply
