Dream And Life

Poem By Natarajan Ramaseshan

I liked to dwell in the realm of dream
where barriers were broken.
Limits were all unlimited there,
and laws were mere flaws.
Impossibilities turned at once
into realities.
My foolish fancies were fulfilled
by friendly fantasies.

I climbed the topless mountain peaks
in fraction of a wink.
I flew along the starry skies;
And drifted down the waves.
I went about in aimless fashion
visiting all the places.

In one such trips, I saw a crowd
of mourners in a town.
I went and peeped to see myself
lying cold and dead!

Oh, what it meant? -I thought about-
'Life is not all dreams-
No dream can ever surrogate
this life'-I understood.

Hello Halloween

Hello, hello Halloween
Fun and frolic, you have been.
Eerie stories doing rounds
Shades of candles forming hounds.

Freedom Courageous

He who yearns for freedom courageous
Will he ever crave for anything outrageous?
He who longs for ambrosia divine
Will he ever think of toddy or wine?

Rise At Dawn

Little children, rise at dawn-
Behold all the joys of morn!
An early bird chirps or sings;
Fragrance rides on airy wings;

William Tell

William Tell, the hero of the Swiss-
Bowman whose aim ne'er went amiss.

Far and wide spread his fame

'She'

When
she smiles
an unblemished morning flower
unfolds.

San Diego

Go to San Diego, you go
Learn history of times long ago.
Where cultures Spanish-Mexican
Blend with trend that's American.
