A Dream Dissolved

Poem By Raghurama Raju

When you are in the middle of a dream,
You suddenly wake up!
As if someone shook your body!
You yawn, stretch your body,
Rub your eyes,
And look around to know where you are!
You try to travel back into your sweet dream!
Your brilliantbrain Which remembers
every silly thing in your life,
Simply forgets the route you just
travelled and
Fails to take you back to the dream!
The garden, its flowers,
The butterflies and
the chirping little birds
Everything is gone!
beyond a trace like
a block of ice in the burning sun!

Green, most often!
Red and biege, other times!
Colourful and colourless,
Camouflage or something,

The Poetic Art

No, that's not the way
One should compose a poem!
If everybody understands
What's great about it?


What is there,
In that remote village?
Where buses and trains
Never run in your life!

We, Men!

We are men.
We don't know how and what women look for in men!
But we know much about ourselves.
We look at women as lumps of flesh
