Dreams are often Peculiar!

Murry Priyanshu Rao 2009 (Rayagada, Odisha)

My bed became a spacecraft,
Yes! Its really true.
Suddenly I woke up
My bedroom disappeared from the view.

Then soon my eyes were bulging
Looking furiously all around,
After sometime I realised
I was not on the ground!

After sometime I saw
 A very bright light,
It was nothing but the brightness of
The earth’s own satellite!

Then I saw my friends
Waiting for me on the moon,
Arranging the dining table
With plates,forks,knives and spoons.

When I landed on the moon
I was overwhelmed with joy,
Playing,laughing,rolling spinning
Which made my friends quiet annoy

One of my friends was making
Tasty tomato soup in a pan
And my best friend was serving
Cupcakes and flans!

When we were about to dine
A noise we have heard,
There was a tall alien standing behind
With long moustache and beard.

When I was at the verge
 Of finishing my dream,
I heard a loud noise
Of my mother’s scream.

After that I woke up
Due to my mother’s call,
I was at the edge of my bed
About to fall.

After that I said “Why you woke me up mom”
“Weather is so cool”
Then my mother said to me
“Won’t you go to school ?”
