A Dream That Was Reality: Prosetry


By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

Huge spacious rooms
A long corridor separating
The rooms and the living room.
Flowing curtains that danced with the breeze
Numerous doors with ventilators above
Both sans grills.
A sprawling garden. A driveway.
A parked car.
Open doors that I keep locking but mysteriously open again and again.
Equally huge backyard with
Servant quarters and extra kitchens that were never used.
Someone moves. Disturbing the tranquillity.
A shadow lurks; sneaking in through the back door, heavy feet.
Spooked; I scream and kick.
My scream stuck in my throat like chunks of ice; FROZEN!

I get up SHAKEN; sweating and shivering.
Wisps of dream lingers on.
Echoing in my soul.

Everything said here is true. I have been haunted by this dream since I was a kid. On discussing this with my mother she told me that we lived in a bungalow like this in Agra Cantt. Our house was burgled while we slept in the lawn because of power failure. Maybe I had witnessed the burglary but was only a year old then. That stuck on in my memory and haunts me still.

      1. When it does strike means it has not ended, it means you anticipate it.

        So sending positive strokes and leaving warnings, forgetting once for all.
        Before going to bed praying and strong vibrations shall get rid of that.
        All the Best to YOU.
        Stay Blessed Ranju

      2. So nice to have Romanus back. I am so happy to get this news. Could you please explain what really happened. I shall anyway check and wish him a grand welcome. Maybe it is not possible for us to ask in the conditions at his blog. Don’t you think so.
        Thanks for giving this Good News Ranjini.
