Desires  in  my  heart  and

Eyes  with  dreams  brimming,

I  kept  looking  at  what was

In  reality, an  empty  building

I  moved  towards  something  which,

I  thought,  was  a  rain  cloud,

That  proved  only  a  mirage  in  the

Vast  expanse  of  sandy  shroud

The  thirst, inside  me,  will  never  be  over  mate

Till  my  quest  carries  me to  super  soul  ultimate

    Beautiful poem Sudha Ji. Often our desires attracts mirage where our thirst is never quenched. Even if one desire is fulfilled next one is replaced. This will keep going till the last breath. There is no ending to mirage. Poem with beautiful message!

    Behind a mirage is our hope that drives us to alter the status to reality!
    It’s an indispensable part of our selves that give life to lofty intentions and perceptions!
    So let us embrace mirage and keep it our unfailing companion!
