With Her In My Thoughts

By Uttam Gill, published on Sep 10, 2013

...but the shore has not acquired the notoriety yet, to make me retreat in haste; instead to my comfort, abiding shore gives me a warm hug .I am cultivating a relation and in the comforting sedation, I hear her voice...whisperingly she asks “are you awake.”I nod my head in affirmation..."Am I dreaming"...I ask. "No you are not" she answers...I again ask "why, you were not answering me earlier" she remains silent...And for long we did not say anything...breaking the silence she says “In the given silence, you came, and you have not uttered any word, but I heard you. You know, you just... (more)

Give Me Dreams to Live Till I Die

By Uttam Gill, published on Jul 25, 2013

“It’s what you have always wanted to accomplish.

Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is. At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible. They are not afraid to dream, and to yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives. But, as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to realize their Personal Legend…”This quote from the book Alchemist is so befittingly making my mind, to write the travails of my emotional structuring, which in recent times, to large... (more)

With rain they draft their fable

By Uttam Gill, published on Mar 28, 2013

... tune of love in their heartMoments of life, that solemnly binds The eternal love and that will lastVerandah in its space builds up moreFrom the cloud the lightening callsHe looks at her with loving adoreShe feels the comfort as night further falls In the enchanting aura they took the handsFor them, the life is a gift and a dreamTheir passion just not know any amendsThey immerses in each other with soul so cleanIn the world so beautiful and calmIn folds of dark night they assembleThe rain says, “Dream in each other’s arm”They whispers “Yes, with rain we, will draft our own fable”

That’s how; we undertake our journey of life

By Uttam Gill, published on Dec 19, 2012

...our journey of life

In usual captivity of realm of our belief, we trust

We fail to see a dagger, eager to stab

All gets camouflaged with fanfare of optimism

Over the murderous assault of betray, we cry

That’s how; we undertake our journey of life

Dream defines easy terms and life takes unusual burdens

In the conjectural spectrum of life, we wonder and drift

Even the drift has it course

In the camaraderie of our drifting course, we set the sail

That’s how; we undertake our journey of life

The truth of dream ... (more)

Breath of Coals

By D. Sager, published on Nov 3, 2012

"Heroes are made in the hour of defeat. Success is, therefore, well described as a series of glorious defeats." – Mahatma Gandhi

Breath of coals consumes the compliantly relented peace of multitudes

Leaping from dream to purpose and defiling with hungered presence

- "Come my enemy, give life to me by your hate"

A leprous char to remain in the abandon of slanderous consumption

The takers of hope are meant to be, giving life to survivor's dreams

- "Come my enemy, give life to me by your violence"

Cherished visions have no meaning unless colored... (more)

The Wonders of the Automat

By Patricia Adams, published on Mar 15, 2012

My dad had a lifelong wish. He wanted to see New York City. His salary as a body and fender man in California in the Great Depression barely kept his family in food and shoes. A trip to New York City was a dream that was unlikely to happen.

By the time he was 72, and I was his caregiver, his dream had faded.

Then a miracle. My husband received a job assignment to Oneida, New York--upstate, but close enough!

The day we arrive in Oneida, my dad and my children begin planning for a summer trip to New York City. The children borrow books from the library and my dad sends for... (more)

A Dream

By Aromal Mukundan, published on Mar 6, 2012

Close your eyes and see a dreamA land of clouds and rainbow beamsA place which is far and hiddenWhere nothing is never forbiddenA world which is still unknownWere magical fairy tales are bornUp in the north a land which snowsThe misery of cold, But no one knowsPenguin, Robins and reindeersHerd of tiny little polar bearsWhere it rains sparking snow flakesA land of ice cubed rivers and lakesA land embraced by dew and mistWhere butterflies and fairies co-existA mysterious garden of ever-blooming flowersSometimes it rains and sometimes it showersDaisies, daffodils and lavenderWith petals so big,flashy... (more)

Those who dare to dream

By Uttam Gill, published on Dec 21, 2011

...the sense to be victorious but with the extreme sense of urgency, need and desire to live intimate moments of my life. Rest is regrettable. All that has been said may not be true but surely if you look into the regrettable episodes of life the starvation there in can be felt.

To me my dreams are very important. To me all that matter which makes my heart to beat. To me sharing of space with somebody is worth living; that makes everything dance for me. All that has been denied to me and then given by them is worth experiencing. All that do not matter which hypocritically weaved and... (more)

When American Dreams Clash

By Jack Bates, published on Aug 30, 2010

The Clash!

The dream of home ownership is losing out to the dream of owning a small business. The business of buying, fixing up, and selling homes called flipping. Right now these businesses and their cash are flipping the bird to some young American families trying to claw their way back in to the Middle Class.

Dilemma!

So what then is a solution to this dilemma? Is it a supply issue? Is it a demand issue? Is it a credit issue? Is it that the American Dream is just that, a dream, a fantasy of days gone by? I think the answer is yes. Yes to all that and more. This... (more)
