Prabhakar Subramaniam


Disappear


In the dream
I kept looking for things
That wouldn't change colour
Fade or just disappear
As if they never were - -
Like the dead
Remembered once or twice a month
When the moon mellowed
Or vanished;
Like the past
Still wearing its foolscap crown
Bougainvillea garlands
Scrap medals
Tattered suit
Clutching an album
And talking of things unseen
That look like they may have never been - -
Even as I thought I found something
That would always be
I felt myself disappear

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
