Reverie (An Acrostic)

a poem by Manjushaa S

Wonder of imagination once took me to a place,
Oblivious to the outside world despite its gaiety and grace.
Rivers here seemed to sparkle and flow forever,
Deep blue, Mackerel skies above filled me with joy and fervour.
Sepulchral images of wildlife blurred in my mind,
World here was tranquil and peace I could find
Olive, Maple and Apricot trees engulfed its glorious ambience,
Rustling and gleaming but sadly devoid of rapt audience,
Time transcends and the embrace of dawn becomes too difficult to resist
Hallucinations grow dimmer, until they finally cease to exist.
