Treasure Island

gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

Past and Present


Only past and present are with me
And I am writing poetry
My poetry are most profound
Most secret of all
Unless you fix your mind on it
You can not look to the future
Through my poetry and also you
Can not lead a good life in your society
I am writing poetry only for you, my dear
You may belong to any caste any creed
Any sex any country any color no matter
I want to disclose my secret
You, my dear, be prepared to read my poetry
Through this link language
With faith, mind not about the mistakes.

    The mistakes aren't usually so bad, Gaj, I've got used to 'my dear'

    and I like the reference to English as 'link'. Now what's the secret? (Report) Reply

    You are correct. The content of a poem not the grammar is relevant. A good poet use the present to fortell the future. You have been doing this well, pal. Well done (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
