He dreamed he spread dreams: a poem and a haiku

2015-03-07 purple

a haiku

dreaming spreading dreams

tenderly he wrote a poem

splendid color sprang

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(a poem from a senior’s mouth)

He dreamed he spread dreams under her feet

royal purple in ManySplendored Thing.

“Tread softly because you tread on my dreams,”

he stammered and fortified against laughter.

Many hopefuls have uttered same in caption

regardless usual flaunts and deaf-eared norm

Alas, dreamers never learn to love ration

or find real strength to quench deceiving passion

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Words in italics are quoted from:

A ManySplendoured Thing is a novel by Han Suyin.

I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.” Poem by W. B. Yeats
