Wikipedia describes Daydreaming as a short-term detachment from one’s immediate surroundings, during which a person’s contact with reality is blurred and partially substituted by a visionary fantasy, especially one of happy, pleasant thoughts, hopes or ambitions, imagined as coming to pass, and experienced while awake.
A man is haunted in the middle of the night by a ‘ghost’! He is suddenly hit by the realization and subsequent repentance of having done something dreadful earlier. So, is he imagining it all or is the ghost for real?
Please do leave your thoughts in the comments section after reading the poem..
I once met a man in his sixty-fours,
“The ‘most shameless’ girl lives next-doors”
With revulsion on his face, he continued-
“She stays all day without any clothes!”
“You’ve got to see one of her shows”,
With that he pulled me to the windows.
I peeped red-faced, then said ‘Nothing!’
“The angle’s just right when you stand on your toes.”

The known history of democracy dates back to ancient Greece, where some of the small city states devised democratic governments for themselves. But the experience of democracy was not pleasant for the philosophical masters-Plato and Aristotle- who criticized democracy as the worst possible form of government, mainly due to the volatility of the mass-mentality.

On a scorching summer afternoon,
You came like the quenching monsoon.
Drenched and intoxicated I sure was!
But I knew it wouldn’t last, because
Seasons change and winds take you away,
Hotter summer suns thus given way.

Happy Monsoons… Enjoy the rain and love! 🙂

Scriptures are not important for Wisdom.
If we could see our Future,

…and Living in our Present!
