My Dreams

I marinated my dreams with yogurt

Just to give extra flavors, all the spices I did mix and insert


I let them sit for a bit to mix them well together

Arranged them with onions and peppers of my priority in the skewer


I relished a few of my dreams, enjoyed the momentary grains of time

But sometimes I overcooked, and they got burnt with time.


And I flew with the wind, my dreams also floated

Upon the wings of multi-colored clouds, around the universe yet, I wasn’t tired


Even I flew towards the endless horizon of fantasies

And my soul did imbue with ecstasies.


But then, as I stood and stared to behold the sight so rare,

I got melted hearing a temple bell ringing at my heart, here.


 I did wear a mother’s costume

As the benevolent life poured their dreams in my bosom


I now prioritize my little world’s dreams

To me, Ah, now it’s the supreme!
