77 16.7.15 sonnet penta quatrain 7 170x170


They say under every rainbow there is

a pot of gold waiting for the lucky ones.

They always cite examples of the ones

who brought that gold home though with not much ease.

For leprechauns or dragons guard that wealth

and tangling with them may not be that good

can actually be bad for one’s health.

The fierce dragon may roast alive

the leprechaun is not that much better.

Dreams of being prosperous or thrive

after a gruesome death won’t matter.

Wealth is waste if one is not alive

Maybe myths are best on dreamer’s platter.

Life is not all about dreams

big aspirations and schemes.

When to just walk and when to hop!


When we should stay on the ground

And gather our wits around

And when the opportune moment will come

We reach out for stars gather some.
