Runaway dreams

on many a wing of a dreamcatcher-
are written a thousand dreams,
bejewelled time, a fantasy snatcher-
on many a wings rides zillion beams,

are written a thousand dreams-
of childhood fairytales and happily ever afters,
on many a wings rides zillion beams-
those of innocence dream-crafters,

of childhood fairytales and happily ever afters,
bedazzled illusion mired in indifferent tones,
those of innocence dream-crafters-
fragmented by reality clones,

bedazzled illusion mired in indifferent tones-
simple wish takes aeons to fulfil,
fragmented by reality clones-
humdrum of life’s grill,

simple wish takes aeons to fulfil-
bejewelled time, a fantasy snatcher,
humdrum of life’s grill-
on many a wing of a dreamcatcher.

Poetry form :- Pantoum ( The pantoum consists of a series of quatrains rhyming ABAB in which the 2nd and 4th lines of a quatrain recur as the 1st and 3rd lines in the succeeding quatrain; each quatrain introduces a new 2nd rhyme as BCBC, CDCD. Continue with as many stanzas as you wish, but the ending stanza then repeats the second and fourth lines of the previous stanza (as its first and third lines), and also repeats the third line of the first stanza, as its second line, and the first line of the first stanza as its fourth. So the first line of the poem is also the last.)

  1. An immensely good job.
    Wowed me for sure as I just wrote a pantoum— truth is I didn’t know how to bring it to a close.
    Now I’ve seen it. I’ll go your way next time I attempt it. Thanks for the glorious dream catcher story. What a gem within the form. Lovely. Just lovely!
