Treasure Island

Savita Tyagi


Coming to poetry site of
Reading at random poems of various icons
Like watching rainbow of colors in sunshine
From prism of window glass design
Poetry of young love and vagrant longing
dreams of their love making
and gnawing bites of silent room
Blown so quick the life of that time
Like speck of dust with breezy clime.

Stick to more seasoned writers
If so I desire
Their pondering and contemplation
Poetry of some soaked in tears
Fate's cruel hands and life unfair
Drink it all poison in cup of wine
Philosophical musing and conventional designs
Soothing spirituality with peace of mind
'Calm is all nature' with no care of mine.

Oh! How I love to venture
In classical writer's papyrus shelf
Read Wordsworth, Li Po or Kabir
Rabindranath, Shelly or Emily Dickinson
Marvel at depth of human mind and emotion
Penned so well with skilled imagination.

Transcendental are Vedic sages and Sufi saints
Their poetry eternal going back to eons
Devotional outpouring upon mystical forms
Merge my soul in a complex bond
Free from shackles of triple chain of time
I am transfixed in oneness of all behind.

This hour long luxury and indulgence
Falling in love with rhythm and rhyme
Keeping tuned with changing concept and style
Simple is pleasure of mine in this poetic world
Never a moment of dullness in its blissful charm
Like walking in a poetry garden
With countless poets around.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
