The Frisky Dreams – A Poem


When a dream is born in you

with a sudden clamorous anguish,

when you know the dream is true

and exquisite, with no flaw or stain,

be careful, or you’ll injure

This fragile thing you cherish.

Dreams are like a mockingbird

flapping its tail feathers.

When you seize the saltbox,

they flee and sail over the hedges

Old birds aren’t trapped with salt or chaff

they giggle as they observe you from an apple tree shaft

Never chase your dreams, poet.

Turn away and laugh.

Mask your hunger;

make it appear as if it makes no difference

whether the desire comes or stays;

yet when it finally nestles in your grasp,

Close your fingers & hold them tight


Thank you for reading my poem. Hope you liked it. I posted his originally on Medium.

Hello Everyone, finally published my new book “Focus”. In this book, I took a poetic licence in considering the spiritual aspect of focus, which has rarely been done. Other books focus on the practical aspect and tell you to do this and that, but in my book, I discuss how we can find focus within ourselves without relying on an action-oriented approach. Any purchases or KDP reads will be greatly appreciated. If you like my books, do leave a review. Here’s my author page on Amazon –

    The song bird sang a tune
    I can hum it yet
    It was just three notes
    So I won’t forget
    And tho’ the bird has flown
    The wiggle of the branch
    Waves at me in joy
    Reminded of the dance

    3. I love the picture you painted here. I’m often frustrated by the empty branch, but now I’ll look at it differently.
