Imaginary friend

October 23, 2014 Leave a comment

Many of us had imaginary friends as young children. If your imaginary friend grew up alongside you, what would his/her/its life be like today? (Didn’t have one? write about a non-imaginary friend you haven’t seen since childhood.)

He works in strange ways
This follower of mine
He wakes up at morning
And trails me all day

As I brush my teeth
He mimics my actions
And as I walk to the busstop
I see he is right behind

Is he friend or foe?
This shadow of mine
Will he show his face?
Or always lurk behind?

Then one day as I walked
A construction site
I imagined –
He tried to hit me with a forklift

Dream

February 27, 2014 1 comment

What is the best dream you’ve ever had? Recount it for us in all its ethereal glory. If no dream stands out in your memory, recount your worst nightmare. Leave no frightening detail out.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us IMAGINARY.

(This is a poem which I had published  last year and here I would like to post it again)

 

dream

A gathering of familiar faces
Of relatives and of friends
A vexing thought revisited
In the canvas of my dream

From the inner recesses
Out of the blue
Objects, characters and emotions
Enact the play in my mind

Screams and sighs
Echoes of laughter
Chased by a tiger
Fights with that school bully

A medley of thoughts
Hidden desires
Resurface and unfold
In a whole new world

A reverie to remember
Or a nightmare best forgotten
Lost in this maze
Of my minds kaleidoscope

The alarm ring resonates
And I wake up with a start
Befuddled by this conundrum
That they call ‘A Dream’
