Castle of Dreams

Ardently fostered castle of dreams,
Once built on a silver stretch of sand
Nurtured by the hands of hope
Wrecked by the blustery wind of time 
Disintegrates in a twinkling.
Swept away by the rolling billows 
Stolen by the wild ocean 
Immerses in the indefinite depth 
To get embedded in the ocean floor.
Nevertheless new castles of desire
Form over and over again 
On the desolate shore of mind.
