RMS Rhone: Sweet Dreams

by Fizza Abbas

On my way to the Caribbean

I met a powerful hurricane,

the strong winds

broke the sunny spells,

scattered showers of rain

and put me to bed.

It was a long night,

I remember

I had dreamt all night long

but didn't wake up ever

to live that dream,

Now when I see the divers exploring me,

I smile for them

and get back to the bed again

to continue dreaming.
