This Dream
For Mujahyd Ameen Lilo*

This dream

s
Off the ocean of books.

It rises, amasses
In the northern sky.

Condenses into
Cumulus of words
Bearing   d

s of wits.

Passion pushes it and
It floats
Drifts
To the southern sky.

Then it rains.

Creativity flashes. Victory thunders.

And the rainbow of trophies
a

s
In our skies.
