Treasure Island

Neela Nath


On The First Day...


you sent me a mail,
it just came to me flying
with a new foliage
in a full-grown tree.
Your spirit was like
a bird, never ever
who doesn't want
to be in cage!
In my life you opened
a new page...
New, new, new
novelty in every
letter and word
pushed me outside
though I was homeward.
In lone desolate place
where sky and sea
embraced each other
and no line could divide
them and there remained
blue, blue and blue,
endless, line-less
profound and very near
to God almighty.
You played a tune
melodious, mesmerizing
and far from monotony.
I didn't know what's day,
what's night, dawn dusk
morning and evening....
You pasted you on my
bark as everlasting leaf.
Leaf, leaf, leaf
are you really a thief
who had stolen my mind
and heart and kept in a
cupboard? Locking it with
a monstrous lock did you
lose the key?
Or just threw it into sea?

    A very spellbinding poem Hari. Reminds me of Autumn with it's leaves
    falling every which way on the ground but it still creates a beautiful scenery
    however it fell by some unknown guest. A poem of mystical meaning. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

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;
