Treasure Island

>> reactions


When the seed of light swings in the lap of tide
and you are in a jolly mood
On the tactical beach of life
but suddenly the sand of truth
Appears like a cloud
And tells you in whispers
What have been believed till now by you and your group,
They are nothing
But is an ocean of falsehood
How are you going react?
Would you avoid and run away like a coward
or react like mimosas and slugs?

You are laid on a bed of dream under the vast sky
And the cool breeze blows sweet
When the clouds of different shape and size
Play a game in your life
Too romantic
But suddenly the blue of the heaven appears like a bird
And tweets in your leather ears that the core belief of you
Does not carry an iota of truth
But a full bag of glittering lies,
Grand and gorgeous
how are you going react?
Would you blame the cloud,
The sky?
Or Would you ask the bright star
for light?
or would you again hide those with a bigger
white lie?

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
