I Dreamt

“I dreamt……
I dreamt of a place…….
A place in the world……
A world where there are no electronic gadgets……..
Gadgets such as televisions, desktops, laptops
Nor any cellphone
No cellphone tucked in……..
In between those tiny hands
Which were meant to create something…….
Something rather extraordinary or unimaginable
No wires
Connected to the power socket…
Nor one connected to the ears
Blocking those sounds of the harmonica of nature
And allowing only those sh**s to enter
All that was present were books
And books and books
Stuffed in those huge bookshelves
Waiting to be read…….
Read to imagine…….
Imagine creating something…….
Create something worth extraordinary
But then……
I opened my eyes
Discovered my cellphone buzzing for that morning alarm
On that table beside my bed
And I realized
That it was a place of fantasy
Was living only in my dreams
And dead in this century…….”
