Dances With Hope

Like a glistening street
on an autmn day
hopes play mischief
with my dreams,
make them sway
and I let the moment ferment
its own sweet little tale
as it gels with the afternoon sky -
ephemeral, azure, refreshingly pale.
They make me drown
in eidetic images
of a life unlived,
your beautiful face,
a balmy smile,
and a dream unfulfilled.
And I may take a day off
or perhaps a lifetime
to string these pearls
in an eternal rhyme.

PS: I thought the whole month will go without a post. Didn't have anything new so I pulled out this old poem. I wonder I'd write like this anymore. I don't fully approve this. :-)

great verses..
i do not agree that a poet would ever stop coming up with poems..a smal hiatus and things would just be fine..

Dan, you write as beautifully as you perform. Wonderful to see a person who has uses words so brilliantly in more than one language.
Really enjoyed the performance on the 23rd. Blogged about it on Whazzupmumbai Also included the info for performances on 1st & 2nd.

It's like a song that stays in your head long after you've read it. Good one.


This is absolutly beautiful... every word of it, especially the stringing of words in pearls. I read this 3 times. There's no reason you should disapprove of this poem. And I love that you posted this on my birthday! Also, thanks for your your comments on my blog while I was away.
