Salt and Hope

last night I was reading a beautiful story of Oysters
of irritants and their pearly affair so sweet
and in those thoughts I must have walked long
for dreamy waves were soon caressing my feet
In my dreams I sang the highest note
I painted rainbow the entire night
jumped from the mountain and landed on moon
and won some hearts and became a knight
In my dreams my house was floating on sky
and every room was portal to new universe
I climbed a kite to enter my house
and grew  flowers full of beautiful verse
In my dreams my dreams were true
up in the heaven I was with you
and  I told god I wanted to be with my love again
and god said We have been waiting so long for you
what a beautiful night it was
when we waltz and jived on every track
and when I said I hate goodbyes
you said in my dreams you will always come back
I laughed and I cried
and had dreams bubbling in those streams
and evey smile and every hurt
became a pearl in my salt water dreams

About Soma Mukherjee

I often say things that put me in a jam, Jams go well with Buttered Toasts, Toasts are great hosts, Ghosts not so much, Although they can dance, Not all dancers are serial killers, Serial killers do not use Body bags that often, body bags aren't leak proof, Proof is in the Pudding.

    Heartfelt, noxious yet sublime – I seem to be lingering in between paradoxical thoughts…The poem encircles the heart yet gently releases. A cathartic poem, indeed! Somi, always wishing you enough. Love & cheers.

  10. Czy miłość
    to wiatr muskający twoją twarz….
    Bładzimy szukając miłości
    czy zimne dłonie szukające ciepła……….piękny wiersz -very nice day

  15. Very beautiful poem Soma, touchy also, brought tears to my eyes.

  16. beautiful creation.


  17. And this day I hope that tears that are being shed
    Drop by multiple drop, in sorrow, each precious
    Will come together, and from another string of pearls
    For two wonderful parents who lost their son,
    For friends and teachers, who mourn a gem of sun
    For all who knew him…
    May they be blessed, to have these dreams too
    To help them with the loss of their loved one.

    Am all choked up. This is the other side of loss. Coping. Though how Joseph’s parents are going to, or how his freinds are going to, I do not know. (Had news of the untimely demise of an ex student this morning)
    Thank you Soma.

  18. I agree with Gabby, you are a genius with words. This is so well written, with such feeling! Very good writing, Soma 🙂

  19. Beautiful, a journey in the mind, a reminder that we all see ‘reality’ individually – we can’t take it for granted that others see it as we do. I love your take on it, though!

  20. Wonderful Entry Soma I love it 🙂

  21. Beautiful Miss Soma, it brought a tear to this old soldiers eye. You truly weave words into a rich tapestry. Long may you continue, for it is food for my soul.

  22. Oh I know Gabby sending you hugs and love..You got me right I am talking about it ….There are dreams where you wake up and feel blessed to have the opposite and then those days when dreams make more sense and give hope and life to go on( inspired by what a friend has gone through and how she coped)

  23. This was just beautiful Soma, you are a genuis with words! I very much identified with the part of dreaming and being in heaven with your love again. It reminded me of course of my husband Dave, who I lost to evil cancer over 8 years ago. Many dreams I have of him, I am just wondering if that’s what you were speaking of. I might be drawing my own meaning, I really hope and pray you didn’t lose somebody, too.
