Treasure Island

Shahzia Batool

(Pakistan)

Jayakrishnan Aluva! ! !


Extra special diamond Soul
Plays a strong and silent role

Joys and pains of life conceives
Filth and fairness both perceives

His gem being gets always thrilled
At lovely scenes beauty-filled

His pictures capture sunset shades
Blows of breeze in valley-glades

Starry-gloss and moonlit shine
On cedars, willows, Oaks and pines

Fragrant, fruity, citron trees,
Buds, blossoms, birds and bees

Burning edge of turquoise sky
Singing floating birds on high

You glut your sorrows on his page
Set free of dolor, passions, rage

Good or bad he nothing hides
Shows with care both the sides

Havoc caused by summer-rains
Watered streets and blocked drains

Pics of thirst, hunger, wants
Terror scene that really haunts

All life stirring he observes
Feels the pain on noble nerves

    All poets have there feelings close to the surface and feel too much. Great poem. Highly observational. You need to take the s's off conceives/perceives in the second stanza and 'His gem being gets always thrilled' should read His gem being got always thrilled in the third. I really enjoyed reading this poem 10/10 Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

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;
