Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab


Modernity


Day by day
One thing very much I missing

We move
With new, new architect
Break all past records
One by one achieve
all our desired target
We wear
above thing
Cover less
With latest fashion
Much more we reveal

I still want more
Something I am missing

Crafty talk
Spicy food
Technical step
Tactical move
Beyond our measure
We invented all

Yet on every step
I falter
And slip down on the huge heaps of vulgarity.

I think something I miss
Without it’s blissful grace
I keep being old fashioned
And modernity will remain to me like a mirage.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"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—
