It was but a dream

Floating on a warm breeze, hope appeared

My heart sang, suffused with joy, but alas,

It was but a dream!


Life gained momentum, my career took flight

I rejoiced, I thought I’d be free of domesticity

It was but a dream!


I settled into matrimony, the kids came along

A sabbatical beckoned, the career could wait.

It was but a dream!


On the wings of solitude, quiet came calling

I sighed, willing to sink, but alas I realized

It was but a dream!


Then I shied away from dreaming, I desisted

But life said, ‘dream on’ and I did even if

It was but a dream!

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (, by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
