Treasure Island

Flowers in our garden


Sun had shined enough
Whole of world had last laugh
I was waiting for good news
Wife was to deliver babies

Yes babies because it was to be twin
Whole of life I had struggled to win
Now I was going to be blessed
Finally the happiness was to be traced

What a pleasure and confidence!
That was built with this chance
I was going to be father
And she was to be lucky mother

Life is incomplete
Without the arrival of some one to greet
New soul in home is considered as good omen
The legendary saying goes on “Hard criminal is also turning into human”

Such is miracle from our creator
You are given chance to lead life with honor
Honor of being called parents in this lovely world
Where you have all the means to live in tiny fold

I heard little cry
The baby was making final try
I was shivering with joy
Finally it gave me news to enjoy

Yes they were born healthy
How to thank powerful almighty?
I knelt down and prayed instantly
Life was to be spent heavenly

The great ordeal was over
I had found cover
The children were going to be flowers in our garden
I was totally worry free and no sort of load was laden

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
