Treasure Island

gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

In distress


In distress, I pray
I pray in distress
O my Master, before You
I know You are here before me.

The content of my prayer
Is not known to me, O Omniscient
I know only You are here before me
And taking all steps for the welfare of all.

I pray, only pray, my dear
Without any thought without any word
You are my words your are my thoughts
You know better than me what would be better.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
