Dream-wall - Asad Chowdhury

Dreams have no doors nor walls
They stroll like open skies,
White birds
flying
circling
In the deep blue sky.

Some raise fascinating walls in dreams
Wishing to grab away dreams
Desiring to cover them up in dresses
Awkward and discomfited like camels –
This is their aspiration.
Only poets can hear
The lament for authority.
Are dreams, then, some hopeless expectations
Shut up within walls?

Asad Chowdhury (born 1943) Bangladesh
