Appreciation

a poem by Aparna Patil

I dreamt of a world
and I know it’s a dream
all I saw was people around me
they were neither scholar nor great men
they were neither my neighbour nor statesmen
all the people seem to be the happiest in the world.
Their secret when asked was thus told –
‘All a creator expects from the people
who look at his creation,
is appreciation.’
All of a sudden, I woke up from my sleep
and realised that, the meaning
behind this dream was deep.

Appreciation is essential for every creature
eventhough it be a preacher or a teacher.
