Treasure Island

M.D Dinesh Nair

(Thrissur/Vijayawada)

A CAMEL


A camel
That walks alone
Across the desert unending
Has no pretentions.
Every camel is so.

A camel
That has a hump large and
A physique strong
Is a marvel to none.
No marvel at all.

A camel
Treads before me at times
Leaving a track to follow and
I carry my small luggage
No caravan is seen.

A camel,
A desert,
A track and
Me.
There is a breeze blowing from somewhere!

    I find the poet himself has turned the camel of endless neglects. Sympathy still linger around mind's shadowy yards, it seems. wonderfully disturbing expression, to me, at least. God Bless. (Report) Reply
