Fantasies

fantasies mushrooming in shell-shocked minds 
suspended underground by power play in the skies
it’s the only way to escape doom, to plant hope
in a child fingering canned food
thinking of tomorrow in an alien land
and come back the day after
under a clear blue sky

events push different buttons in different people
-immortalizing it in art
prevents dissipation of lessons learnt
like a virus that comes and goes, mutates into insouciance 

history buried in eagerness to resume normalcy
awareness throbbing underground 
sprouts new forms of art and science 
to weave a fabric of continuity
appliqued with forgotten stories

  1. ‘There was a problem with this request. We’re working on getting it fixed as soon as we can.’
    I shared it on facebook. Their message- There was a problem with this request. We’re working on getting it fixed as soon as we can. Half an hour… still try to fix it.

  2. I especially love this ‘awareness throbbing underground
    sprouts new forms of art and science’. This is exactly what is happening now. Thank you for this beautiful poem 💛💙

    This is a great line. Everyone perceives things based on past experience. Hopefully there will be light at the end of the tunnel for Ukraine!
