I am taking part in The Write Tribe Festival of Words 8th – 14th December 2013.
Day 7 of the Write Tribe Festival of Words prompt-DREAMS
Dreams! What a contradictory word. They follow us from the time we learn to accept life in its different hues. Parents dream to see their children become achievers. Children dream to fulfill these promises. A process of every changing curve of sustenance can shatter some dreams and some turns out in a heart warming reality.
I have been a dreamer as long as I remember, and have seen most of my dreams getting shattered too. Did I lose hope because of these failures? I did! I tried to compromise with the given situation, letting my dreams cocooned in some recess of my desires, deep in my heart.
” Where there is a will, there is a way”.
Maybe my dreams couldn't be shut down for a long time. They awakened from the slumber to exorcise me, to make them into a reality. I fought down my defences. It was tough, but I did. And the silver lining of achieving what seemed impossible,brought the bliss in the parched heart and a spirited soul.
Fighting to survive
On the plinth of reality
A force of unsung destiny
Like a thirsty mermaid
Searching for dreams
In the vastness.
The swirling warmth
Of the azure blush
She danced in circles
Fetching conch shells
