Dreams at Slumber

by Tukumoni Mahanta
(Tinsukia District, India)

I pick up a dream every night
Again I throw it away....
Just like a chocolate
Eaten in full contentment
And the thrown away wrap into the roadside
Dustbin, where it is written 'use me'.

Yeah ,my momentary dreams can be used to live
But the eternal shades of blue dance in tranquility
Holding symphonies from an unknown zone!

A girl in her mid thirty
Yet quite empty
Trying to negotiate
Her drowsy reality
In a state of slumber.

The neighbour's cock and the morning dew
Remind me of five smoky cups of tea
And as a neophobic allow myself the common activities of a day.

Words of heart.

Whenever a writer gives a word to her/his heart's voice,then it become a real wonderful story. Inspiration for other, example for society. Scent of love and care spreads in universe for always.
