Distant Dream

Pisceans are said to be intuitive and intense dreamers. 

Anyone who disagrees???

I think we pisceans create a parallel world, a different dimension, and we try "all is well with the world." Sometimes it's successful and sometimes it's not! (yet we keep trying!) 
Just rushing around the by lanes one comes across faces forlorn and forgotten and yet they were always there. Incidents, pleasant and unpleasant, surround us at times making us smile at that memory while people wonder at our awkward times it even glistens our eyes while a tear trickles down at that faulty fate when things toppled over beyond our control just like that deck of cards! (in the first place "who asked you to place that cards that way just to be toppled over, right!?") 

Here's a tale(fictitious) of a such a soul who escapes into that dimension to  relive her glory and forget her grief.


Distant Dream

Rats scurried through the scavenger night
Rattling and shaking in the deck above lay
Rosy, the drama queen!
She dreamt of a distant past where she lay
On blushing bed with satin cushions strewn around
Half naked and lipstick smeared she rose a toast
To the bequeathed destiny and her child!
She raved, roared, screamed and shrilled
To the quiet of the night and dazzling eyes
She rose and fell with times that she could never foretell
Applause and shakes, garlands and roses were quite her fav'
Chairs were brought and umbrellas held to keep her beam
Those were the days she enjoyed the most
Now she lay all forlorn in an unidentified cube
Dreaming of the distant past!

This was written in 2013. The artwork is from 2012. I have always been hesitant to share my writings...things have changed...over the years. We evolve!

I would love to hear your thoughts...

The images I mentioned in my poem in one of my posts, I can't get the image out of my head were:

Van Gogh's Starry Night Over the Rhone
Edward Munch's The Scream
and Gustav Klimt's The Kiss

Thanks for trying it out and Kokila (Gupta), you have almost replied all three!!! Thanks dear :)

Linking it to PPF.

Your poetry and abstract are extraordinary!! And I do agree about Pisces since I am one. I dream very vividly , and even at times in other languages. I also hear in my dreams the foreign accents of the people I may be dreaming of. Happy PPF !
