Treasure Island

Rajesh Thankappan

(Guwahati)

On A Starry Night


I ventured into the night to gather a bouquet of stars
Pluck and place them in the basket of my thoughts,
The night was dark and the stars stooped low
Lighting up the open field in their silvery glow.


I saw a thousand of them in a pool of water
Prying upon the earth and then winking at one another,
I could feel the warm embrace of the cool mesmerizing breeze
While shadowy trees nodded their head in this celestial scene.

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;
