Treasure Island

Blossom Mist

(24 February 1978 / India)

No Longer


The dusty lanes don a look black
A plush halogen hangs and flowers lack
No longer I smell the earth
Or feel the grass and dust

As the sky wore a new crown
The high rises and sky scrapers look down
No longer I see a kite falling from the sky
Or a kite runner run like a fly.

I can’t make my bike vroom
As the speeding cars zoom
No longer I see the green lawns
Ruffled hair and scraps of chiffon

It seems my ground went poof
Where I hit the ball which broke the roof
No longer I see my own ground
When as kings we ruled around.

Where did the moon hide and stars go
Nor the clouds hanging low
No longer di I feel the wind blow
Or see the fireflies glow

What all you have faced
Seen much from those crazed days
Playfulness seems a tale of old
The innocence seems running cold

How much the things changed
Now I know why I feel dazed
I don’t speak to people anymore
All is distanced as waves from shore

You now seem like a strange place
As I keep running a wild goose chase
I bet you miss those days
In your memories too it’s there as haze

In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
