Treasure Island

Vinaya Joseph

(05/10/1979 / Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh)

Oh, My God!


With full faith
And reverence
In my heart
To God
I ask,
Where are you?
I see people go to places of worship,
Write odes,
Climb hills and peaks,
To seek your help
But I don't see you,
In temples
Churches or Dargahs
Neither do I see you
In crucifixes,
Nor in stones,
They built
In your name
But I do see you
In life,
In a child's smile,
In nature,
Deep within,
You and me!

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
