Treasure Island

Vinaya Joseph

(05/10/1979 / Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh)

Flight of time


You and I
Are just passersby…

June bids adieu!
And here comes July,
With all its trappings,
Bright mornings, sultry evenings…

Birds, butterflies and bees,
Playing on my trees…

Air is filled,
With the fragrance of the flowers

In my garden,
Passion blossomed,
White and purple
Hung from the vine,
Its tender petals,
Swayed in the breeze

Along with it bloomed,
The bright orange pumpkin,
Both the vines intertwined,
In strange unison

Today's glories…
Tomorrow's ruins…

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
