"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

When we are child we see lots of dreams but later on we realise that things are not same ..We can't live our dreams..We have to accept reality..

    I'm not sure if I had any particular dreams for the future when I was a child @anshi. But I've been a bit of a draft or in the sense that I have never been ambitious about anything much.

    I dream a lot but I always forget them when I wake up. :D

    I've been trying extra hard to remember at least a part of my dreams as I wake up @Bubbly, and it seems to work - a bit. I can usually grasp the last few images and 'feeling' of the dream for a few minutes after I wake up.

    How do we know that 'real' life is not a dream and that our dreams are real life!

    Good question @amatsuscribbler. Though my dreams are usually so convoluted that when I wake up I am glad to find that real life is much better.

    I have always dreamt vivid, full colour dreams which I tend to remember for some time afterwards. I still remember some from my childhood! And that's a loooong time!

    I can remember some of the most vivid dreams when I was a kid @amatsuscribbler (I used to dream a lot of flying). But now I tend to wake and just have the impression of the dream linger for a few seconds, or if I'm very lucky, a few minutes and then it seems to vanish. The dreams are very vivid but only at the time.

    I have just listened to the song "What the world needs now is love" posted by @Teach in July 2016 and It is totally the truth. The world needs a lot of Love. Mainly in this period that we are living here in Brazil. The presidential election is causing a lot of fights between both sides with the difference of their idea, but the dream is the same... Brazil better than we are living today, with less corruption, less poor people, fewer people starving, more jobs, more housing, and other needs of the Brazilian guys.
